Hang Squat Snatches
10 OHS (135/95)
We have been working on positions in Olympic lifts lately, and also putting our grip to the test…today we are continuing down that path with hang squat snatches. This lift is very complex and takes a lifetime to master, our focus today needs to be on speed and explosive power while maintaining good positions. This is no easy task, stay with it, stay focused and let’s get to snatching.
Holy kettle bell swings! There is nothing like reinforcing our explosive hip drive like a kettle bell chipper! We are doing a descending ladder of kettle bell swings with 10 reps of overhead squats following each set. The intention here is continue to strengthen our overhead positions with a moderately heavy overhead squat while also improving muscular endurance throughout our entire body. As you’ll notice, maintaining core stability is far more challenging when under fatigue, but push through, stay tight and have fun with this one. Today we are training strength, power, balance, coordination, stamina and endurance.
