I couldn’t decide which ridiculous lift to post today, so I thought maybe we should have a little contest. It’s up to you guys… Which one of these four lifts is the Most Magical Monday Moment?
It’s like the Sportscenter top ten, except only four, and no balls.

Dustin Hawkins – 250#/114kg REALLY Power Snatch from blocks:
Lacey Van Der Marel – 86kg/189# PR Snatch from blocks @ 58kg:
Arlen Castaneda – 275#/125kg Snatch triple from just a little lower than the power position:
1) 5X1 Clean from blocks (just above knee) – work to a max single for the day (no more than 5 attempts), rest as needed
2) 5X1 Jerk from blocks – work to a max single for the day (no more than 5 attempts), rest as needed
1) 3X3 UB Hang Cleans (full) from the Power Position – rest 90 sec.
