Snatch Grip Deadlift  1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

Coach’s notes:  Post load for each set to comments.  Compare to our recent snatch grip doubles (April 29) and triples (February 5) if you did those WODs.  Do not turn this into a regular deadlift.

Comments: 19

FYI- I think there is a typo. April 29th was the other snatch grip DL WOD.

115/125/135/145/145/155…improvement over the last time I did this WOD. Very pleased 🙂

I realised I wasn’t doing near what I should have after the workout.

135, 155, 155, 155, 165, 165


Had to repeat 155 because I didn’t lift fully the first time but don’t think I hit my max, out of time.

5×135, 3×185, 1×205/225/245/265/285/295*/305*/315*
(*) means used straps. Figured it was ok based on Trevor’s comments on April 29th.
+ 30 L-pull-ups, planche & lever practice.

3 X 115/3 X 125/ then 135/145/150/155… may have been able to go a little more – ran out of time – grip hurt more than anything.

125/145/155/165/175/ 180 fx2
I think I could have gotten it with a little more rest time

Turned into a regular deadlift — not solely because I can’t read or because I am a rebel student, my wrist can’t handle anything else.
225# = matched my pb.
Thanks Gord for the suggested workup reps and 4 min rest. Followed that and it made each lift feel good.

First time really using the hook grip, makes a huge difference. Final successful lift of 345#. We wont discuss the form used to get that lift. But it locked out. So it counts.
Steve, whats the name of the place for the shoes again? I forgot as soon as I walked out the door.


Never done snatch-grip Deadlifts before.


That’s 5 pounds less than my standard DL PR.

Re: Shoes
I’m also interested. I have heard that Spark Conditioning in Edmonton is now an official distributor for Rogue equipment. They might have the Rogue Do-Wins. I’ve sent an email to inquire.

Neil – 215/225/235/245/250
Judy – 125/135/145/150/155(f)/155(f) -did this weight last time – note to self start at a heavier weight
Way to go Amy – you are getting very strong!!

105,125,145,165, 185,205,215,225. 235,245 PB


My technique in getting 345 was pretty ugly too, so don’t worry about it Taylor. Once I got 345 (PR by 10) I think I lost the commitment for the attempts at 350.

I got my weightlifting shoes at dynamic-eleiko dot com. They are clearing out some of last year’s adidas weightlifting shoes at a decent discount, but unfortunately you get hit for $45 shipping to Canada.

Worked up to 155. Next time I will start at a higher weight as I think I could have done more. Amy you are strong, good job!

a very ugly 365×1….last time was 365×2 so a little disappointed but with the form I displayed if I went higher in weight I probably would have hurt myself 🙂

taylor…way to go with the lift…you fought hard for it…I got my shoes from the place Cory mentioned…however do not email the guy he will not get back to you…phone him…

75/95/115/125/135/140/145 (f)
Almost had the 145#, but the grip hurt bad enough that my hands let go without my permission. I was so close. Next time I will get it! Even with the 140#, it’s a 10# improvement over the last time.

Worked up in 10# steps to 265, then went 265(f)/265/265(f).

Hook grip helped a ton; need to start using that now that I’ve figured out where my working range is.

Started at 44#(PB) and went to 225#(new PB)
This was my first time doing this and if i had started out higher i might have been able to go to 250ish. Thanks for the great coaching.
