Week 2: Snatch Balance

JP CrossFit – Olympic Weightlifting

Watch these before class!


Hang Snatch (5×1)

Low Hang Snatch – bring the bar below the knee.

Start at 75% and work up to 80% of your Snatch.


Overhead Squat (5×3)

Technique Track! Build to a heavy 3 (or 3RM) over the course of five sets.

Clean Grip Deadlift (3×10)

Strength Track! Start at 80% of your clean and work up to a heavy 10.

The clean deadlift position is exactly the same as a clean – hips down, chest up, bar over the toe knuckles, shins touching the bar.

Don’t go so heavy that you slip into a conventional deadlift!
