Lotsa explosion today guys. One of the biggest mistakes we see with the Power Snatch is that when the weight gets heavy the athletes only concentrate on the explosion and not dropping under the bar. Remember as long as you aren't breaking parallel it is still considered a Power lift, and honestly for our purposes we would rather have our athletes catch in a full squat than starfish their legs to get depth. If you are starfishing your legs or having to press out the Snatch then its too heavy. Don't let your ego train bad habits- drop weight and work on perfection.
Box Jumps are 2-4' higher than last week- which should be pretty close to 90-95% of your effort. Same thing with the ego- if you don't think you are going to make a jump- then don't jump. Its not worth hurting yourself for a box jump.
