Workout of the Day

B) Double KB Walking Lunges

Next Up… Snatches

Congratulations to everyone for wrapping up our 5-week deadlift cycle in style! We saw many 1-rep max PRs last Thursday.

Next up – snatches. These are probably the most technical barbell movement that we do, but also one of the most fun. There’s nothing quite so satisfying as slinging a heavy barbell over your head like a boss. Since most people will be limited by technique more so than strength, we’re going to return to our 7 sets of 2 format similar to the split jerks. For the next 4 weeks, the weight will be the same across for every set. The goal will be to increase 5-10# every week as appropriate. In the 5th week, we’ll go for a new 1RM (check out this post for more information).

I’m super excited to focus on snatches for the next five weeks. See you in class!
