Workout of the Day

Part A. 10-15 minutes:

In about 5 progressively heavier single rep sets, build up to a heavy single rep snatch with approximately 85% to 90% of your 1 -RM snatch.  Then complete a few reps of clean and jerks with the heaviest weight that you used for the snatch.

Part B.


Seven rounds for time of:
4 Snatches (135/95 lbs)
6 Clean and Jerks (135/95 lbs)
9 Deadlifts (135/95 lbs)

Compare to here

*Please note that you have to use one bar, so you will need to scale the weight to fit the movement that you are weakest at (probably the snatch).

  1. 160# 1RM snatch-felt like I could have done more but my form started to go. Better off staying there.

    17:18 rx’d

    So much more worse than it sounds. Ugh! Happy Saturday!

  2. A. 160# – 10# PR
    B. Didn’t look at my time RX’d. Need to strengthen core so I can keep motoring through and not take breaks

    thanks for the good coaching john

    • James – I did not catch your time either, but it is a really big achievement just to Rx that one. You were already fairly strong when u walked into the gym. Once u get your core strength up and build a little more work capacity, u will be surprised how much your progress speeds up. Don’t be afraid to scale a WOD every once in awhile to force yourself to go through a workout with less rest and more emphasize on keeping your core under control. – John

  3. 18:11 – 85# Thanks for the coaching, John.

  4. Wish I could have been there or this one! Make up for sure!
