"The secret to a long life is to stay busy, get plenty of exercise and don't drink too much. Then again, don't drink too little."

- Hermann Smith-Johannson, 103-year-old cross-country skier

Workout of the Day


Today:

The muscle snatch is a snatch without the dive under the bar. The idea is to deadlift and as you pass the knees, rapidly explode the hip and follow through with an explosive pull straight through to locked out overhead. This snatch is a regular support exercise from the Olympic lifting repertoire. It places a heavy emphasis on the upper body compared to the Snatch.


Muscle snatch 15-12-9 reps with same load and 1 minute between sets.

Five supersets of back extension and sit-ups. Make each exercise slow and tough. Add weight to back extension if ready. Go SLOWLY!
