Barbell_Snatch_1

Super-set One

Barbell Snatch (6-8 reps): This is a complex move that gets easier after practice. It will feel right. Start with the barbell on the ground. Bend your knees with your back straight and grab the barbell with a wide, comfortable grip. Explosively shrug the weight upwards keeping the bar close to the body using the energy generated from your hips to carry the barbell overhead. Simultaneously duck your body underneath the bar. Once the barbell is locked into place overhead, stand up fully with the barbell high over your head.

Cable_wood_chop_low_to_high_2

Cable wood chop low to high (10-12 reps): Grab a handle on a pulley machine or grab a dumbbell with both hands. Crouch down and bring the handle to your side low towards the ground. As you rise, with your arms straight, bring the weight or handle across your body diagonally toward the sky on the opposite side of your body.

Dumbbell_Russian_press_3

Super-set Two

Dumbbell Russian press (8-10 reps): stand with legs wider than shoulder feet apart with one arm at shoulder level. Bend the hip as you were sitting back and lift the arm to a press while you transfer the weight toward the other side. This move should be powerful. Use your abs to decelerate the weight. Do one side and then, the other side.
