3 Overhead Squats


Squat Snatch

3 sets x 3 reps

Note: build to a weight that is challenging for 3 reps, but yet that you can repeat for 3 sets. This should not be a grinding set of 3. You may use the percentages between 75-80% of your best snatch if you have a number from the last 6 months. Compare the load from last week.

Strength Tip

If athletes’ technique is not there yet with the snatch, stay above the knees and master this position first before adding more range of motion. Make Sure athletes weight is in the middle of the foot, and their back is straight with their shoulders pinched back. From the ground lift the bar and receive the bar in the overhead squat position with the hip crease of the athlete above parallel.
