In the sport of functional fitness, an athlete’s maximum strength and strength battery is extremely important. Strength battery is an individual’s ability to lift a high percentage of their one-rep maximum over and over. This gives us great insights into the recoverability of the athlete’s Central Nervous System along with the ability to dampen the system between
each lift.

Good scores:
The snatch 1RM goal should be 1.3 x bodyweight and then, 275 pounds for males and 185 pounds for females.

Secondarily, males should finish 25 reps for time in less than 5 minutes, while females should be less than 3:30.

Potential limiters:
• Snatch absolute strength
• Mechanics in the snatch
• Snatch battery
• Aerobic ability
