WOD for Tuesday 1-31-2012

Matt S. shows the perfect finishing position for the Split Snatch. He is in a good “stacked” position with the barbell, his shoulders and hips in perfect vertical alignment. His shin on his lead leg is at a 90 degree angle to the floor and the weight on his back leg is balanced on the balls of his foot.

     – 3:00 of row, skip or Airdyne

     – Burgener Progression
     – Jerk Drives
     – Snatch drops

Snatch Technique Work

     – 2 Position Snatch @ light weight (no more than 50%) every minute on the minute for 10 minutes. First rep is pulled from the high hang, second rep from the ground.

     – 3 sets of 3+1 Reps @ 75%  (Note: 3 + 1 means perform 3 Cleans and then a jerk from the shoulders immediately following the last clean)
     – 3 sets of 2+1 Reps @ 80-85%
     – 1 set of 1 rep. @ 90%

“Cash-Out” (optional)
     – Complete a total of 25 “High” Box Jumps, not for time! Step down after each rep. Focus is on exploding from the hips with minimal arm involvement.
