Snatch Grip (Behind the Neck) Push Jerk + Paused (:02) Overhead Squat
Work up to a heavy single, pausing for a 2 count at the bottom of the Overhead Squat. Aim for close to or above your Snatch 1RM.
The goal of the Performance work is to receive the barbell in a full depth Overhead Squat. If stability and/or flexibility limits you from doing so, perform the Fitness version of today’s barbell work instead.

Use your non-dominant side to dictate load. OK to rest 1-3 times on the carries. Dumbbell Thrusters should be heavy but unbroken.
