The only thing I did different was my stretches, I started this program with a 180 snatch and now I have a 205 snatch and I didn’t have max intensity throughout most of the program

Was a good program to start learning the Olympic lifts, I like the videos that show what the movements look like. I recommend to try this program and throw a couple sets of pull ups and push ups/or dips on rest days or training days

Notes from Torokhtiy Coaching Team:

  • This program is designed for those already with 6+ months of general weight training experience

  • No matter the prescribed load, form is always priority at this stage of training

  • Athletes must be sure, that it is even better to decrease working weight in upcoming sets if they felt that previous one was with comprising quality

Weight selection:

LIGHT

This weight won't strain your muscles significantly. You can focus on perfecting your technique. After finishing all reps, you should feel capable of doing 4-5 more, with slight muscle fatigue, slightly faster breathing, and a slightly elevated pulse.

MEDIUM

This is a moderate working weight. You need both physical and mental concentration. After completing a set, you should have about 2-3 reps left in the tank, significant muscle fatigue, and quicker breathing.

CHALLENGING

This is a heavy working weight, requiring intense physical and mental focus. After a set, you should have only 1-2 reps left in the tank, significant muscle fatigue, and rapid breathing.
