This may be some sort of a 5RM record for the “non-heaving” Drop Snatch. Honestly, there’s only so many numbers I can remember, and I know this is more than I can do, so I’m gonna call it a record. We’re very scientific here at Outlaw Industries.

From Jay Santana:
Just wanted to say thank you. I know you get these messages all the time from people that you don’t know, but I just felt that I still had to say it. I’m an active duty Air Force medic who has been following The Way since April (as close as prescribed as the gear that I have will allow it). I am still learning the lifts (especially the snatch) and don’t have big numbers to boast, but I’ve seen huge improvements in everything. With that being said, I just took my PT test and had the best score in my career (67 pushups in 1 minute, 70 situps in 1 minute, and 1.5 mile run in 10:15). Again, these numbers might not seem like much, but to me they are the best that I have ever seen, and I know that with the stuff that you put on your website, I can only get better.
Don’t underestimate those numbers, Jay. We revel in PRs no matter what the test. Thank you for your service, buddy.
