Training Plan for Tuesday August 7th, 2012

Have you been able to catch any of the Weightlifting events from the 2012 Olympics? If you can’t find anything on TV, check out the NBC Olympics website for replays.

Skill Review:
     Snatch warmup w/ barbell
     Clean & Jerk warm-up with barbell

Workout: “Vagabond Weightlifting Total” (compare to June 3rd results)
     I. Snatch
          – Take up to 10 minutes for warm-up sets. Then take 3 attempts at a max Snatch*

     II. Clean & Jerk
          – Same condition as above*

* if you are new to Olympic Weightlifting, do not go for a max attempt. Start (very!) light and work up to a moderate weight while maintaining good form.
