The list is long and the bell was broken a couple of times from how hard it was rung!
Keep it up everyone. Another 6 weeks till the next benchmark. Can't wait to see what everyone gets then

** if you trained snatches on Sat you will perform Jerk Presses Instead
The power snatch is the most basic variation of the snatch; the only difference is the height at which the bar is received.
The power snatch can be used to train speed and force production in both the second pull and the third pull by limiting the amount of time and distance the lifter has available to get under the bar.

3 POSITION CLEAN + 1 X JERK
Clean from the ground (pos 1), knees or Low Hang (pos 2) and hips or high hang (pos 3), followed by one Split Jerk
10 X 3 : 75%+
The push press is a very common accessory exercise in weightlifting to help the jerk.
If the knees rebend at all after the initial dip and drive, the lift is no longer a push press, but a push jerk. If the feet remain totally flat during the drive of the legs, the drive is not hard or long enough—the heels will rise at least slightly if the leg drive is adequate. Each rep of multiple-rep sets should begin from a dead stop and the full jerk rack position.
4 X 5 : 70%
The back squat is the most basic strength exercise in weightlifting, and one of the most commonly used exercises other than the competition lifts.
1 X 20 : 65%
