d3 - Snatch and Pull Up Ladder

We had programed 5 sets of 2 reps @ 85% 1 RM Snatch but we didnt have a 1 RM yet so we worked up to a 1 RM OHS then used 45%ish of that. I basically wanted to keep the snatches light because I am retarded at them.

So I did 5 sets of 2 at 33kg

Then did a Pull up volume ladder - 1 in the first minute,2 in the 2nd and so on for 12 minutes totalling 78 pullups.

I then did 3x3 Front squat at 60kg because I am convinced that getting my FS stronger will help my deads and push press.

How long are these workouts taking you mate?

About 90 minutes but that will shave right down when I have a full list of 1 RMs. Spending alot of time on testing at the moment.

It has got me thinking that maybe workouts could be posted different: Take Fran 21-15-9 Thruster @ 95lbs and Pull Ups

Could be Fran 21-15-9 Thruster @ 45%(of 1 RM Thruster) and Pull ups

The scaling of the Pull Ups still can go either way I reckon, assistance or less reps.

I like it

For fran I think it's important to keep the reps, so they gas you. Just scale to jumping/band, then it's up to each person to gauge how much they use their legs to assist each rep. Thats just my take anyways.

I stand around a lot in a Fran. Usually because I fail on reps and then feel sorry for myself and I can't pick it up or get a full chin. If I used a weight that I could do 21reps with and learnt how to kip right or used a band then the only reason I'm stopping is because I'm letting myself stop, not because I can't lock out or get my chest or chin over the bar. I think this would be a much better way to train.

I think this (@45% of 1rm) makes it more even across the board and keep the intensity their for everyone. Like that vid said, scale so everyone can do a 3min Fran.

I like where your head is at mate :)

How are you finding the HSPU 1-100 challenge Brett? Are you finding that you are able to string more together in a row?
