1. Overhead Squat Complex.
Performed with an empty barbell; one set of five reps in the three different versions. These are: (1) down slow, up fast, without pause in the bottom position; (2) down slow, up fast but with a three second pause in the top- and bottom position; (3) 1,5’s. No pause in the bottom position but a pause in the top between reps.

2. Conventional Snatch Warm-Up
One set of three reps in A, B, C, D, E. Be sure to use a large plate, and not the small metal plates, to get the right distance from the floor. Three seconds pause in the starting position of all lifts and in the overhead position of the muscle snatches and the catch position in C, D and in the bottom position of the full snatch.
A. Snatch Pulls.
B. Muscle Snatch.
C. Power Snatch.
D. Deep Power Snatch.
E. Snatch.

In 40 mins complete as much as possible of:

3. Snatch Chipper
Men: 60/1, 70/2, 80/3, 90/4, 95/5, 100/6, 105/7, 110/8, 115/9, 120/10.
Women: 35/1, 40/2, 45/3, 50/4, 55/5, 60/6, 65/7, 70/8, 75/9, 80/10.
All the weights are in kg.
Scaling options: The weights are obviously very heavy and will be too heavy for most people so scaling down is perfectly sensible. Chose a weight for the last ten reps, which is challenging but that you can manage. You should aim for one lift every minute in the last round.
Team workout options: If you have a training partner at the same level as you consider doubling up on reps and doing the workout together like Jacqueline and Gabi:

Rules: If you take a step forward or back as you stand up then that lift is a no-rep. If you fail a lift you have to do ten bar-facing burpees over the bar as penalty before you can continue snatching. If you fail three times in a row you are out.
