Sons Of 1 Barbell Club

Tuesday 25th August

1. BARSKI SNATCH a bit different way.  we want to work on the transition from floor to mid thigh: 1st rep from floor, pause 1 sec….then explode., 2nd rep and third rep from hang taken from the high hang….try to make the same position hit and explode like the one from the floor. ,  work up to  ( 70%X1+1+1, 75%X1+1, 80%x1+1)2   that is 2 waves.  remember to: drive thru your feet and legs….strong legs, FINISH AND pull your body down and around bar!!  critical to make all three positions the same……the problem becomes that many can do more from hang than from floor because the floor rep is not the same as the hang reps.  make all 3 the same.  if you have to go down in weight….that is ok…. 2. snatch deficit deadlifts….stand on a 2-3″ block: same set up as snatch.  deadlift to launch, to down position, to high hang.  no stopping or pausing.  90%x3, 95%x3, 100%x3  you can use straps. 3. snatch pp+ohs+sotts presses:   you select the weight….it will be light.  i want 1 snatch pp+ 1 ohs +3-5 sotts presses….work on external rotation….elbows forward….the weight will be light. 4. pull ups (strict) 25 total. 5. sit ups 100 or if you have the EVIL WHEEL do 50 of those.

Friday 14th August

STRENGTH: 1: Clean: 10 rounds- Every 2 minutes, compete: -1x hang clean + 1x push jerk + 1x clean + 1x jerk (work up to a max for the day) *These are not touch and go reps, treat it more as a (1+1) + (1+1).  Also, for any strength/Oly portion, the squat is always assumed, unless noted as “power”.  Any work capacity/CrossFit style/For time component, it is the opposite. You can perform the movement any way you choose, unless a squat or power is specified. 2: For max reps: -1x max rep unbroken clean and jerk (135#/95#) *Push this to your limit. For most athletes, 30 reps is the furthest they have gotten because that was the goal, but push past that number mentally.  When you don’t think you can do another rep, do 3 more, then re-evaluate.  This portion is more mental than anything else…meaning how much can you embrace the suck and push past the pain because, yes, it is going to hurt. WORK CAPACITY: “Balls to the wall”. Complete the following for time: -Run 800m with medball (20#/14#) -10 rounds: 15x wallball (20#/14#), 5x weighted pull up (20#/14# medball between feet or legs) -Run 800m with medball (20#/14#) *The ball should never touch the ground nor leave your person during the duration of the work capacity. “This is my medball. There are many like it, but this one is mine.” Core: For time: -50m 2-arm KB overhead carry (2x 70#/53#) -50m 2-arm KB front rack carry (2x 70#/53#) -100m 2-arm farmers carry (2x 70#/53#)
