Wednesday June 4, 2014

Today is the 1RM for Snatch and hopefully many of our athletes are excited to put the last 6 weeks worth of work to the test. I have put together a few tips when working 1 RM's.

  • I will help you guys with this one, but get a good warm up. You want to excite the nervous system (AKA Box Jumps, Jump Rope, Burpees, Mountain Climbers, Etc).
  • Move with the bar through the movement quickly and efficiently.
  • Add weight in equal but fairly large amounts. Don't wear yourself out before you actually get to your 1RM.
  • Don't attempt your previous 1 RM go past it.
  • Once you are past about 80% of your old 1RM you need to be resting 3-4 minutes between attempts.
  • Breathing...make sure you have adequate air in your diaphragm before your attempt to help keep your core tight.
  • Power of intention. Believe you will get this lift!!
