Tempo Day / Snath Day


I decided to add a couple of reps of bench press to excite the nervous system and see if it improved my snatches. Yes, it worked.

Flat Bench Press

135 x 5
185 x 1
205 x 1
210 x 1


24kg 5/5 10/10 15/15 10/10 10/10

100 reps = felt great


Warm up
Track Drills/ Hip Mobilty
10 x 100 yards

I love your simple and effective sessions. You have got to be one seriously explosive guy!
Glad you had a nice vacation..I always eat too much and gain weight on vacation...;)!!
Interesting about BP's helping with snatches..

thanks Tom. Managed to gain zero weight on vacation - worked out alot!

Try lifting a couple of singles on the bench prior to Snatching, and let me know what you think?

Tom Shook, RKC said...

I shall do that, and let you know. Thanks for the tip!

nice volume of snatches.I had no luck combining benches with snatches but I had wrecked shoulders coming in.
