Olympic Power

In the spirit of the Olympics, we will perform the Olympic lifts. The difference will be that we will be doing them for reps and not max-outs. Please don't throw the weights back on the ground after the lift is done, control the weights back to starting position.

Snatch 3 sets of 10 reps
Clean and jerk 3 sets of 10 reps.

Use a light weight, especially if you have never done these moves before. If you have done these moves, use a weight that puts you near exhaustion at rep 10 per set. See pictures below for descriptions of the moves.
