Hang Squat Snatch




Sets start every 4 min

%s based off 16-Dec 1RM

Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics. Our third round Hang Squat Snatch this cycle.  As you know by now, we’re trying to develop better force production in the triple extension and to be more aggressive in pulling ourselves under the bar.  The %s stay the same, but reps increase each round.  So, time per round jumps up to 4 minutes.



Dual DB Snatch (50/35)

400m Run

Video courtesy of Street Parking.  Quick demo on the Dual DB Snatch. Today’s WOD is about explosive weight movement followed by steady-state cardio.  Try to efficiently knock out the DB Snatches as fast as you can to get right back on your run.  With the runs, your speed in the final 400 should be pretty close to the speed on your first 400M run.

Scaling Options:

DB weight -> 35/25 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Overhead Thoracic Drill – 2 Min

Hurdler Pose – 2 Min per side
