High Hang Snatch + Hang Snatch + Snatch 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1
Use the heaviest weight you can for each set. Rest as needed between sets.

High Hang Snatch = from top third of thigh. Hang Snatch = just above knee. Athletes with an established 1RM should start with ~73%. Athletes without an established 1RM should start with a load that they can perform with excellent mechanics and little to no fatigue, and build from there at coach's discretion. Build by feel, but the goal is to make all eight sets with excellent mechanics, not to push to top weights.
