    Safety Bar 30 cms Box Squat or Back Squat (3 weeks progression – 6/5/4/4, 5/4/3/3, 4/3/2/2)

    Thick bar Zercher Lift & Squat (5 progressively heavier singles)


    Power Snatch Push Press Behind Neck
    Power Snatch Snatch Balance
    Power Snatch Over Head Squat
    (variety of options here, could be 1 PS then 1 each of the other 3 movements to complete 1 set or do all 3 couplets with a 15 – 20 second intra set rest, or treat each couplet as a separate exercise)

    Push Press or Military Press (3 weeks progression – 6/5/4/4, 5/4/3/3, 4/3/2/2)


    Front Squat working up to starting weight of Clean & Jerk

    Clean & Jerk

    Front Squat (doubles or triples starting at the finishing weight of Clean & Jerk)


    Barski Clean (3 squat cleans staring from the hang position between below knee and high thigh) great article in IronMind Volume 3 Number 3 by Bill Starr, also another wonderful article “The Drill” by Bill Starr (Vol. 4, No. 1)

    Borreginne Complex – 1 Squat Clean 1 front Squat (can be singles, doubles or triples)

    Burgener Complex – 1 Front Squat 1 Split Jerk Squat (can be singles, doubles or triples)

    Pick one, two or all three of these demanding combinations and work for about an hour, a wonderful way to finish off the week, especially when you do not have to worry about going to work later in the day or tomorrow.
