Developing power requires the application of vertical and horizontal movements wherein each individual repetition will “overcome resistances by a high speed of contraction” (Sefcik). Some of the most effective tools in the development of power are Olympic lifts: the clean and jerk and the snatch.

3 Rounds for Time:

7 Power Snatches, 70% OHP Max
