Muscle Snatch + Carry in Best Damn Program


#1

Hi CT
If the goal is to lean up a bit and I want to use muscle snatches in the best damn workout how would I go about it?

Still one all out set of 4-6 sets of snatches and carries and then maybe remove one exercise to compensate the volume ?

Carries can be done for multiple sets if fat loss is the goal. Up to 5 sets of about 30-45 seconds.

For muscle snatch I would use a strength-skill approach (something like 6 sets of 2-3 reps with 75-80%) at the beginning for the pulling workouts. It wont jack up cortisol so you don’t need to cut anything from the program.
