Part A) Overhead Squat (10 minutes work up to a moderate heavy weight)

Part B) Snatch Balance (10 minutes drop the weight from your overhead squat by 40% and rebuild)

Part C) Muscle Snatch 1-1-1-1-1 (last rep should be a weight you can still muscle snatch but you are very comfortable power snatching)

Part D) Power Snatch 1-1-1-1-1 (last rep should be a weight you can still power snatch but is the beginning weight for you to receive in a full Squat)

Part E) Snatch 1-1-1-1-1 Remainder of time Receive the Snatch in a full squat.

Coach’s Notes: These are all complex movements and if you have a weakness in one particular area, you may use the entire class time to work that area. For example, if your goal is to do a full squat snatch but you struggle with the Overhead squat, you should may work on the Overhead Squat for a longer period of time. If you struggle with fast arm speed, work more time doing muscle snatches. If you want to work foot position I’d recommend working Snatch Balance and Power Snatch. The above grouping is a suggestion to working on Snatch and/or your Snatch Technique. Please come in and take advantage of this type of class, especially if the Snatch is a problem area for you.

Advocare 24 Day Kick Off

Posted: April 20, 2014 by Todd Katz in Uncategorized

A very big thank you to my all of my coaches who were able to help cover classes while I was on vacation!!! You guys are awesome!!!

Reminder: This Thursday night at 7:30 PM will be the ADVOCARE kick off. As I’ve previously mentioned to many of you… Each time I visit Florida (usually twice a year) I go to one of two boxes in the West Palm Beach Area. I am pretty astonished at how many people use the Advocare products. Here is a link to Rich Fronning’s Advertisement of the products he uses. I plan on trying the Advocare 24 day challenge to see for myself how well this product works.

Dr. Todd Miller from George Washington University will be coming in Thursday night to speak about Nutrition and how the products can help us during the 24 day challenge. From What I’ve learned there are two path’s to the challenge… a weight loss / slimming challenge and a performance challenge. We will learn more about that Thursday.

I’m hesitant to call this a Nutrition Challenge in the way I’ve done them in the past. However, no supplement can replace good nutrition. I strongly suspect that Nutrition MUST BE A PART OF THIS PROCESS!!! So this 24 day challenge will take the place of our traditional Spring Nutrition Challenge. To join this challenge however, will mean using the Advocare products.

The Date of the kick off is Thursday April 24th at 7:30 PM. We will use that class spot to host the Dr. Miller and learn about the challenge. The Challenge itself will probably not start until the 1st or 2nd week of May. I don’t believe we will be able to buy the products this Thursday if you choose to do the challenge.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I believe the price of a challenge product kit is around 200 dollars…. but it does come with a lot of stuff. Again, let’s all learn more about this on Thursday night.

Pilates Starting today begins at 11:00 AM
