I started doing power snatches from the floor as a warm up for deadlifts, and now I find myself enjoying them almost as much as deadlifts.

What’s a good set rep scheme to progress with them?

Yesterday for instance as I working from home I did a set of 12 x 65 to warm up, a bit later did a set of 10 x 85, then a set of 10 x 85. After approximately 30 minutes I did a set of 6 x 95 (was working and just periodically got up to lift on the lanai).

Then a set of 105 x 2, and finally 115 x 1. All the lifts went up nice and fast though on the 115 I had to dip maybe 4 to 6 inches when recieving the bar at the apex of the lift.

The weights are relatively light, but so am I at the moment---- 160 pounds 2 6 ft even.

Anyone else do these ? If so what’s your frequency, and set rep schemes?

I am lifting on my lanai so cannot drop the weights. From the final position I flex my traps and lower the weight down to the front of my shoulders and then to the floor.

Mahalo,
