Question: Which method of weight lifting do you thing Russ chose to get 235# overhead? 

Photo-137 

Answer: Strict press

Rational reaction to such information: Holy crap!!!

Russ' reaction: "I'm having an off day" (about 20# shy of his PR... I'd like to see him lift when he's having a good day!)

 

Ya, he could most likely strict press you, no joke. He is a strong man.

Please remember that today was focusing on pull two and three of the snatch. 

Tomorrow we will be focusing on Pull 1. Lets remember that pull 1 is simply a positioning pull to get you from the floor to your jumping position at mid thigh aka the pockets. 

 

 

Workout for Tomorrow:

   

 

Snatch grip Deadlifts heavy! Remember that on the snatch unlike the powerlifting deadlift we are looking for more of a "squat" starting position. 

Why?

Are you ever going to snatch what you can deadlift? The answer should be no....therefore it is not as important to engage our hamstrings for a stronger pull as it is to set ourselves in a good position to jump. This position comes from a more squat like deadlift position....we then maintain this position until we hit mid thigh...then the jump begins and the hips extend. 

 

 

Row 250 meter's hard!

 

4 rounds of:

20 Push Press w/ 45#'s

20 Back Squats w/45#'s

20 Behind the Neck Push Presses w/45's

 

Row 250 meter's hard!
