The final month of the year is here. This is when most members take a break from training for holidays and visits home to family. For this reason, there are two options for the program this month.

We start the first week strong! We are going to test our main lifts in week 1 and establish where we are and if you are new to Oly and aren’t sure what your maxes our, this is a fun way to find out!

Throughout the weeks, we will be including a lot more work from mid-shin and/or a pause at the knees, focusing on trying to maintain strong back throughout the whole lift.

Snatch Balance and OHS, to work on our core!

Squats percentages are on the upper %, therefore make sure your warm up sets are dynamic and explosive.


Week 1


A: Power Snatch + Snatch Balance : 5×1+1 ( Keep it light)

B: Snatch Lift Off + Power Snatch + Snatch : 4×1+1+1 (do not exceed 70%)

C: Snatch: Find your max for the day
