5/3/1 Day 3 Substitute - DB Snatch?

Jim, I was wondering if DB Snatch would be a substitute for military press…my max squat was 385, and on wave 1, week 2 I got 335 for 7 pretty easy on the last set of 3 plus. Thanks for this program and all your help!

You might want to ask this in the 5/3/1 thread.

No. Push press or jerk are OK- taken from the book.

When I saw you commented this thread I was sure it was going to be a, “if only there was a thread…” joke.

Nah I think this warranted me going the extra mile to be honest… don’t you?

I don’t know, DB snatches and barbell presses are almost the same…
