Open 19.2 announcement tonight. 

Below, you will find an optional "Pre-Game" activation. If you are an athlete that feels "rusty" in a sense after a full rest day, moving today in such an active recovery fashion can restore mobility and assist us with performing at our best tomorrow. If not, we recommend full rest. No right or wrong approach here - go with what is natural.

If you are an Open athlete, without knowing the details of the workouts of course just yet, we plan on Friday and Monday being our competition days. Naturally, our volume will be lower in compa...

8 Minute EMOM:

3 Position Power Snatch
Set 1-2- 60% of estimated 1RM Power Snatch
Set 3-4 - 64%
Set 5-6 - 68%
Set 7 - 72%
Set 8 - 72-75%

3 Positions of the Power Snatch:

#1 High Hang 
For the snatch, the bar starts in the hip, in the clean it stays at high thigh. Keeping your chest up and driving through your legs and hips allows for us to work on our finish position. The finish is the last time we are pulling on the bar before starting to pull under. If we ever having trouble with bar path, using the high hang position allows us to emphasize points of performance...

Climbing to a heavy for the day, but not a max effort. Start with the below percentages, and build on the final three sets all based on how the loads are moving today. This complex does not need to be "touch and go" power cleans.

Set 3 - 78%
Set 4 - 82%

10 Dumbbell or Kettlebell Thrusters 

3 Wall Walks (FB – 25’ HSW)

*DB – 50’s/35’s KB – 53’s/35’s

On the 2:00 x 6 Sets:
2 Split Jerks

*After each set, complete 40 Double Unders

Set #1 - 75% of current 1RM Split Jerk
Set #2 - 78%
Sets #3-6 - Build to a heavy double for the day.

Climbing to a heavy set of two repetitions, with a refinement-based set of double-unders, purely for familiarity, in between complexes. All jerks are taken from the rack.

Recognizing that this combination is fairly shoulder intensive, let's err slightly on the conservative side with our jerks if we are torn between going heavier, or holding at moderate loads. Let's train the...
