Bell House Fitness – Lifting



3 sets:

2 snatches (60%)

4 sets:

2 snatches (65%)


We are in the fourth week of our final weightlifting cycle for the year. This week we are taking a step back for the cleans and snatches. Take advantage of the lighter loads to work on moving as well as possible. The back squat and bench press are going to be where we lift heavy with an opportunity to work up to a new 1-rep max. Get after it and have fun!

Perform each set of snatches as singles. The weights are light, so focus on moving to the best of your ability.

Rest 2:00-3:00 between sets.

In Accessory – I, build to a tough weight for the paused overhead squats. Prioritize tempo and positions over load. Stay true to the tempo and don’t increase weight unless you felt as if you owned the movement.
