The race for 200# is heating up—like blue flame hot. If I had to guess, I’d have to pinpoint Palm Desert or Iceland for the location where it’ll happen first. Doesn’t really matter where, it WILL happen.
Yes, in case you’re wondering, I’m talking about Elisabeth and Talayna battling for the first 200# Snatch. I can honestly say I never imagined I’d write that sentence featuring female protagonists.
Talayna Fortunato – 175# Hi-Hang Snatch:
Elisabeth Akinwale – 185# Hang Snatch (no, this is NOT a Hi-Hang):
1) 10X1 Hi-Hang Cleans (with hip) + 1 Push Jerk – heaviest possible, rest 60 sec.
2a) 3X5 Pendlay Row – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec. DEMO VIDEO
2b) 3X5 Split Press – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec. DEMO VIDEO
High Bar Back Squat: 1X5 @ 75%, 1X3 @ 80%, 3X3 @ 85% – rest 2:00
Notes: Percentage should be based off of your most recent 1RM Squat.
4 rounds for total working time of:
10 UB Front Squats @ 70%
Notes: DO NOT pace these runs. Every round should be all out.
