*The heavy singles on today’s program are NOT meant to be new 1RM’s. Based on feel, and your ability to maintain movement quality, and proficiency, will dictate how heavy you’re able to go. If it’s not there, don’t force it.
A. Snatch- Heavy 2
B. Clean + Jerk- Heavy (2+1) or (1+2)
*The clean & jerk complex should be done based on weakness in one of the two movements. If the jerk needs more focus, then the complex that is one clean followed by two jerks should be priority. If the other way around, prioritize the clean.
