Week 8 of "Sled Dog" kicks off with another week of Stamina Squats, increasing 3% from last week. Going lighter following the squats with some snatch technique work. This technique work leads up into our 3rd iteration of "On the Minute" Squat Snatches. Finishing the day out with a fast paced bodyweight burner.

Snatch Grip Sotts Press (5 Minutes to Build to Moderate Set of 3)

The snatch grip sotts press helps improve positioning, strength, and mobility in the bottom position of the snatch This exercise can be very challenging based on your mobility level If mobility is not an issue, feel free to add weight as you see fit If you struggle with mobility, keep the weights very very light here A PVC pipe or empty barbell will do the trick in helping to open up and strengthen the catch position See Movement Here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5DDi9nmJOg&feature=youtu.be

Snatch Drop (5 Minutes to Build to Moderate Set of 3)

Now that we opened up the bottom position a bit, we'll add on some speed with the Snatch Drop The Snatch Drop is designed to work on an aggressive turnover into the receiving position of the snatch Because we aren't driving upward into the bar before dropping under, the weights will be lighter than they are in a movement like the Snatch Balance Keep the weights on the lighter side and focus on good speed and an aggressive punch See video of snatch drop here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpWUE56EtfU&feature=youtu.be

Squat Snatch (Emom 5)

On the Minute x 5: 5 Touch and Go Squat Snatches This is a repeat from July 26, 2019 and the 3rd iteration of this complex Complete 5 unbroken squat snatches on the minute for 5 rounds, resting until the top of the next minute If you have done this piece before, aim to beat your last score If you haven't done this before, a good starting place is around 60% of your 1RM Snatch It is better to choose a load that is slightly too light and make all 5 rounds than it is to choose one that is slightly too heavy and miss reps -Working on the Sotts Press and Snatch Drop right before this, let's carry over the aggressive turnover into the bottom position over to our Squat Snatches.
