This marks the first week of a 6 week snatch cycle. It won’t be the only strength movement we do, but there will be more of an emphasis on snatch movements each week. Also, most squat days will be at a prescribed percentage of your 1 rep max. Read the notes for that day’s movements, often all sets should be done at the prescribed percentage.
Back squat 5×5 @ 70%
Warm up to then complete 5 working sets at 70% of 1 rep back back squat.
For this strength cycle I will be programming squats at a percentage of your 1 rep max. Experienced athletes can follow the percentages. Newer athletes should continue to work on getting comfortable with the movement, aiming to make each set challenging.
10 front rack lunges (115/75)
