This week’s challenge was the One Arm Snatch with a Barbell, no hook-grip. The measure was the heaviest snatch done. Volume was not a factor this week. We had one new entrant, Mike Turpin, from Niko Hulslander’s gym in Brogue, PA. Welcome to the fray, Mike and goo job with 40-kilos. You had a lot more weight in you!
Mike Turpin – 88-lbs X 16 Reps
We also had the line wolf, Gregory Jimenez come back for some action from the way down under, Australia, knocking out a snatch of 99-lbs. Great job, brother!
Gregory Jimenez – 99-lbs X 1 Rep
Next we had Paul Tompkins, who by a quick count in my head has taken part in the second most challenges of all combatants and has also won the second largest amount as well. Below he rips 110lbs overhead for 8 reps. He had a lot more in him as well.
Paul Tompkins – 110-lbs X 8 Reps
And finally, we had the reigning champion of both the Weekly Diesel Grip Challenge, and also the reigning rule-breaker of his gym in North Carolina, Josh McIntyre who blatantly disregards his Big Box Gym’s rules and brings chalk into the facility in true DIESEL style, AND knocked out 140-lbs for a set of 2 twice. Awesome job once again!
Josh McIntyre 140-lbs X 2 Reps X 2 Sets
