Grippy Snatches

My triceps and upper back were still pretty sore yesterday, but it’s almost gone today. Out in the garage at 4pm.


  • 3:00 BikeErg (1,562m)
  • 80′ Lateral Monster Walks
  • 80′ Monster Walks
  • 10 Monster Squats
  • 20/20s Bottom Pistol Holds
  • 10 Toe Touches
  • 5 Hang Power Snatches (45#)


3 Sets

  • 20 alt Pistols
  • 10 Barbell Hip Thrusts (95#)

I’m not sure what was going on with my last week and even warming up today, but I was really hesitant to do pistols. I buckled down and found my technique again though.

3 Sets

  • 10/10 Staggered Stance RDL (barbell, 95#)
  • 15 DB Goblet Squats (50#)

I don’t think I like these staggered stance Romanian deadlifts.


12:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 15-15-12-12-12-12 Hang Power Snatches (75#)
  • 10 Bar-facing Burpees

Ewww! 78 is a lot of snatches after zero in three months. Originally I wrote this to be 10 powers but switched to the hang at game time to save my back. Since they’re quicker from the hang and the first round was feeling good I went for 15 reps. In round two I knew that was a bad idea as my rest time was quickly being eaten up. So I dropped to 12 reps in round three and told myself to survive the 4th set and then I could quit the workout. I got through the fourth and knew I could suffer through two more rounds. My grip almost had other ideas and those final two rounds were rough!
