The last couple weeks the intensity and volume has been pretty high. Tomorrow we are going to test if you are over trained in a way. We will do the Olympic Total. Two lifts. The Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. You score will be your total. If you don’t get to where you have been in the past then you are probably a little taxed. Those on the body challenge. If you have changed your diet you may feel this the most. Feeling drained or even sick after working out. Taking naps during the day…etc. (Although naps during the day are awesome for recovery…if you can’t ‘help’ but take a nap then there is an issue.)

Here is how this is going to work. You will do a general warmup. Coaches be lenient with the strict warmup and let your athletes work on there sticky points; shoulders, hips, ankles.
1. You will attempt all lifts 3 times or until your are successful.
2. You will no rep yourself if your lift is a ‘press out’. If you catch the weight with bent elbows and press it out over head.
3. You will stabilize the weight over head for 1-2 seconds before dropping it.
