We’ve done a lot of pull snatch work and we’ll continue to see that in metcons this block. But I want to work on our OHS positional strength so that you’re all comfortable under a heavy snatch weight. This first movement can be a heaving snatch balance or a pure drop snatch balance. If you can’t snatch balance this weight, then drop the weight and drill the movement first.

The OHS reps each require a pause in the bottom of the squat – just two seconds – to help build strength in the bottom position.

Part B is simple. Resist the urge to hang onto something while doing your pistols – like using the rings or a pole to balance yourself and pull yourself up. Ask your coach for help with scaling.
