Snatch Day! This was last Saturday doing a light day of snatch drills. I think the highest I ever got this day was 20% away from max. I do olympic weightlifting twice a week and the lifts rotate. One week is Clean and Jerks for Tuesdays and Saturdays, then the following week is Snatch for Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The way the class is split up is we spend about 10-15 minutes doing warmup depending on what the lift is. We do agility ladder drills, back extensions, broad jumps, duck tag, and then a complex like a push press + sotts press + snatch jump + unweighted vertical jumps. Then we do the lifts working up to about 20% of your max, and at the end of that we try for max effort or PR’s. If we have time we will sometimes do a lot of sit ups or planks.

This class was a lot of fun because a lot of my friends where here and it was a girl filled class. We even had a guest lifter from another prestigious olympic gym and her lifts where incredible to watch, and HEAVY. We all tried to emulate her ‘head thru’ and perfectly tempoed first and second position.
