%s Based off 25Oct 1RM

Video and description courtesy of Catalyst Athletics.  New cycle!  For the Snatch variation this cycle, we will do the High Hang Snatch (or dip snatch).  To execute:

Begin standing in the tall position—standing fully erect with the bar held at arms’ length. Bend smoothly at the knees only as you would for a jerk, then quickly and aggressively transition in the bottom of the dip and extend the hips and knees together to finish the pull of the snatch, completing the rest of the lift as you would for any snatch. Be sure your feet remain flat as you dip and drive hard through the floor with your legs. This lift is meant to be done with an elastic dip and drive—there should be no pause in the bottom of the dip. Make sure to keep the bar against your body throughout the lift—don’t let it be pushed away at any point.



For Time:

30 Clean & Jerks (135/95)
