Monday 29/9/14

Workout of the Day
Every 30 seconds, for 15 minutes (10 sets of each) perform the following:
Interval 1 (30s) – Drop Snatch x 1 rep
Interval 2 (60s) – High Hang Snatch x 1 rep
Interval 3 (90s) – Snatch x 1 rep

Perform all movements at 65-70% of your 1-RM Snatch. If you aren’t confident performing a drop snatch with 65%, modify the movement to a Snatch Balance and allow yourself to dip and drive a bit.

Every minute, on the minute, for 10 minutes:
Strict Shoulder Press x 1 rep

Loads per set (by %): 55, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 95+, 95+

Once you have found your 1-RM (which you will use for this entire cycle), then perform the following:

Two sets of:
Strict Shoulder Press x Max Reps @ 75% of today’s 1-RM
Rest 3 minutes

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
3 Power Snatches (70/47.5kg)
6 Overhead Reverse Lunges (70/47.5kg)
9 Ring Dips w/Pause @ 1112
(stick to the tempo, pause one second in the bottom position, and two full seconds at full elbow extension)

Don’t cheat the dips just to get more rounds. Stay strict to the tempo so that you can reap the benefits later in the cycle.

Three sets of:
Bent-Over Barbell Row x 6-8 reps @ 2111
(note the tempo, pause at the top position for a full second)
Rest as needed
Chinese Plank x 60 seconds each (face up/face down)
Rest as needed
