WITH TRAIN YOUR WEAKNESS
This Train Your Weakness FOCUSED programming will have you doing a technically correct snatch in just 6 weeks
SAMPLE OF PROGRAMMING
WEEK 1/SESSION 1
Day 1 is going to start with a test. We want you to have something to compare to after having completed all six weeks. After warming up, we’ll have you test a heavy snatch for the day. This does not need to be a personal record attempt, just build up to a single heavy rep so we have something to compare. BE SURE TO FILM THIS.
For our first day in this series, we’ll be putting a focus on creating overhead stability using the snatch grip push press. Remember that we want to envision the direction the bar is moving which is to the ceiling as well as having a strong press UP, not back.
In the second part of the session, we want to transition this overhead stability into the overhead squat. Our focus will still be on the barbell and pressing it UP, but as we press up we will allow our lower body to descend and accept the LOW position of the overhead squat.
Test (10 minutes):
Build to a 1RM or heavy single for the day of a squat snatch
*Film this effort so we have something to compare to at the end of our 6 weeks.
Warm-up (4 min):
Foam roll lats, 2 minutes per side
Control 1 (10 min):
5 sets of 5 reps, Behind the neck snatch grip push press
Rest 60 seconds between sets
Start with the empty barbell and build up to a final heavy set of 5
Control 2 (10 min):
5 sets of 5 reps for quality, 3 Position overhead squat with the empty barbell
Rest 30-60 seconds between sets
Specific (6 min):
5 sets of 3 reps, Barbell Power snatch from the hip
Rest 60-90 seconds between sets
*Start with the empty barbell and build to a moderate-heavy set (75-85% of your best snatch)

When should I be doing Train Your Weakness programming?
We recommend completing the TYW session immediately before or immediately after your normal 1 hour general training session.

Can I do multiple TYW programs at once?
It’s not advisable that you do multiple programs that focus on the same muscle groups (example: HSPU & RMU - too much strain on shoulders!)
You can do multiple programs at once, as long as they don’t have the same muscle group focus.
We are excited you want to smash your weaknesses, but we also don’t want you getting hurt.

Give your body a week of rest before jumping into another TYW program that focuses on the same muscle groups!
