Tuesday Strength 9/15

Ilya Ilyin 205kg block snatch.

Ilya Ilyin 205kg block snatch.

After three weeks of practicing positions, particularly leading up to and moving through the power position, we will now shift our focus towards pulling under the bar. Emphasis will now be placed on footwork and sufficient squat depth when receiving the snatch and the clean. I know we have not tested maxes yet, please use the “work up to heavy weight” numbers from the past weeks as an approximation. Great job so far everyone! I’m very impressed with your efforts to hammer down good technique, keep it up!
