Snatch Balance Pyramid
5×5 Reps of:
- Snatch Balance
- Overhead Squat
For Time 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Reps of:
- Power Snatch (115/85)
- Lateral Bar Burpees
For the first portion of this workout, focus on your technique more than the load.
The second section is intended as a sprint; your goal should be to finish under nine minutes.
“Receiving the snatch in anything but a vertical and stable torso position will result in a lifter producing excessive lean of the trunk, often leading to missed reps,” Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Mike Dewar writes.
The snatch balance will reinforce your core and abs strength and stability, as well as give you awareness of the correct bar path in the recovery position of the snatch.
