Strength Cycle: Post-Open Cycle 2 – Week 1
4 Power Snatch @ 70+% – Touch & Go
10 1-Arm DB Floor Press
*Alternate arms each set, so you get 4 sets on each arm. Don’t let your arms crash to the floor, or you’ll risk banging up your wrists & elbows. Pull your feet under you as if you’re going to do a glute bridge. These will aid our Landmine Press, and provide us a nice Core accessory, too.
5 Squat Clean Thrusters – L: 105/70; S: 155/105
10 Jumping Pullups or 5 Kipping Pullups (S: 5 BMU)
*Cap = 14min. Heavy and high skill again. The SCT needs to be a weight that is managable in fast singles. BMUs should never exceed 2 sets, if going Sport. T2B will probably be the big bottleneck for most people, because 15 is a lot of reps. Work to push yourself behind the bar, drive the knees up hard, and flick those toes at the bar. Then, PULL your feet down to get the most out of your swing.
