9 Air Squats

* These rounds of 3-6-9 are low-rep and alternate between muscle groups, which will allow you to maintain a fairly high intensity throughout

* We expect this piece to take between 18-25 minutes to complete


* Adjust the rep number or variation to allow for unbroken sets throughout


* Choose a weight you could complete for 12+ unbroken reps when fresh

* Within the workout, we’re looking for very fast singles or touch-and-go sets

* This shouldn’t be a weight you’ll get stuck at, as a quick single should always be in the tank


* With fast moving rounds of “The Chief”, let’s make sure to hold ourselves to a high standard regarding range of motion here

* Today’s two part training day will dial in the higher skilled squat snatch

* We’ll start by working a 3-rep complex that is designed to be completed unbroken

* “Heavy” is relative based on the athlete

* For athletes with excellent technique, the goal will be to build up in weight

* For athletes who need more work on mobility or technique, keep the weight lighter and the focus form

* This first piece is for everyone, regardless of where they are with this movement

* As a reference, low hang means below the knees

* Our conditioning piece today is a quick 3-station workout

* This shorter cardio and weightlifting workout is designed to take between 6-10 minutes


* Choose a light-moderate weight that you could cycle for reps, but will likely complete as quick singles today

* This should be a station that can be completed in less than 4 minutes (5 reps on the minute)

* For athletes who struggle with technique or mobility, there are several options:

* Lower the weight and complete as squat snatches

* Complete these as power snatches instead

* De-construct the squat snatch into: power snatch + overhead squat

* Finish on top of the box with the body at full extension
