Workout of the Day
A. Take 20 minutes to build to today’s heavy Snatch
Let feel dictate the load for your lifting today – if you feel fast and your mechanics are good, keep building. If not, stay lighter and work on speed and mechanics.
B. Five sets of:
Snatch Balance + Overhead Squat
Rest as needed
C. Four sets for max reps in 2 minutes and 30 seconds of:
Row 500 Meters
Handstand Push-Ups x Max Reps
Rest 90 seconds between sets.
D. Three sets of:
Stationary Dips x Max Reps
Rest 30 seconds
GHD Sit-Ups x 15-20 reps
Rest 30 seconds
A. Worked up to 180 lbs in the split snatch. A PR for the split.
I stopped here because the 20 minutes were up and this was the first rep with any strain (did not want to go super heavy today). I think that I have more in the tank for next time.
B. 115, 135, 145, 155, 165(F)
C. 5, 6, 7, 6
Getting the HSPUs back, these felt pretty good. Need to push for that last rep a little harder.
D. Dips: 20, 11, 9
GHDs: 15, 15, bailed (started to feel like a strain on my hip/back when I started this set so I skipped the last one).
I am still only running at 85 to 90%, but I feel much more mobile this week than last week. Especially so after an ART (active release therapy, not arts & crafts) session on Friday. Going for two more sessions this week. Diagnosed as a hip strain, so nothing too serious.
First time I have gone heavy on the snatch since before I got injured on 1/7, I wanted to wait until I was feeling fully up to it. Trying the split at CJ’s suggestion (Thanks!!!) after going backwards on the squat snatch. Squat snatch PR is 185#s. The split snatch felt great today. I should be able to match and pass my squat snatch PR using the split when I am back to full strength.
