CrossFit Lynchburg Weightlifting – Week 9, Day 2

By May 28, 2015No Comments

We’re going to take some time today to work on things we need to do but don’t.  In particular I see CrossFit athletes receive their snatch high and then ride it down in to a full squat.  While you will always ride it down a little to absorb the load, a lot of athletes literally receive it in a power snatch position and then go down.  If this doesn’t change your snatch progress will be halted for sure.  So today let’s work our technique on this aspect of the snatch.

Snatch
Tall Snatch + High Hang Snatch + Hang Snatch from below knee
Work to a heavy single
(land deep, butt on the ground or as close as possible and pause for 3 seconds.  Work with barbell only, and progress slowly.  Have someone watch or video you so you can see if you’re doing it right.)

Accessory Work
Glute Ham Raises x 5 EMOM x 8 min
