  1. If no blocks do we do hang snatch from just above knee instead? Probably self explanatory but wanted to verify. Thanks!

  2. Probably a stupid question, but on a snatch grip deadlift should you be setting up with your hips lower and bar away from shins? Or just a snatch grip but same setup as traditional deadlift?

  3. Spencer– I live in upstate new York, the high for the next 10 days is 20*f… running outside in weather that cold aggravates my asthma, if subbing rowing for running what is your preferred ratio?.. in the past I’ve subbed 250m row/200m run…. today for example I’d sub a 2000m row.

    I have access to airdynes would it be better to sub airdyne work?

    • ryan, used to live up there myself… normally for a run/row sub we do the following at my gym… 400m run = 500m row, 1000m row = 800m run. so your 2k row would be in line with the 1600m (1 mile) run. As far as the airdyne… i have never used it for distance intervals before so im not completely sure how this would convert over to a run sub…

    subbed 20x HSPU for HS Walk

    run was interesting. the turns were wide outs since i had no traction in my shoes to cut tight corners. HSPU’s felt good today, had my right shoulder poped slightly back into socket on friday at the hospitol. Had a partial dislocation for the past 3/4 weeks which is why i have struggled with the dips and hspus, get to see the ortho this thursday to make sure everything is good to go. fun stuff haha. Ready to destroy the next few weeks now.
