"When cleaning, only pull the load as high as is minimally required to slip under and catch it chest high."

Read that on the main page and went out and snatched 90% x 10sets of 3reps.

I've been progressively overloading a snatch workout, adding 5lbs a week.

HPSN x 3 (adding weight each week)
Situp x 30
Dip x 12
10 rounds for time

I figured I might be tapped out on triples with the % of max load climbing to 90% this week...but that simple coaching tip made all the difference...felt like I could’ve hit 100% x 3.

Guess I’ve been over-pulling.

Thanks Jen!

After todays workout I went for it...
Previous record was a bodyweight snatch x 1 rep (165lbs); easy triple with it today.



Hit this after a tough workout:

10 rounds for time:
hpsn - 155 x 3
situp x 30
Dips x 12
18:55

Strong work Jerry. On the video you're pulling the bar up to nose level.

Thanks Linc - Guess I'm still over-pulling.
I'll work on it next week - no reason I can't keep raising the numbers if I can tweak this a bit.

Jerry, more like you are under-squatting. You should do a full squat every time. You should be able to put up even bigger numbers in no time.

Good work.
