Squat Snatch

Way to plug through yesterday’s WOD! Today we are going to slow it down and work to our heaviest, single rep on the snatch. For those of you who don’t yet have this movement down, you will be getting very well acquainted with a PVC pipe. We are looking for our one rep SQUAT snatch not power snatch. Even if you get less on your squat snatch than your power snatch because you are scared or unable to complete a full squat under heavy weight, you will still be practicing your squat snatch. You will then have time afterward to work on your squatting mobility and ability.

    talk about extreme: Paleo meets geek tech:

    If I don’t see people today, have a great next week and 1/2, we’re off to South Dakota and Yellowstone for some camping/hiking/climbing fun! We’ll miss our daily ass-kicking by the man!

    175# New PR for me!!! Small jumps in weight and adequate rest between lifts makes all the difference in the world.

      Forgot to mention that I failed twice on 150.

    i found something funny on pinterest today: a picture of a bunch of crossfitters doing box jumps and the caption, “you’ve realized you’ve joined a cult . . . and you like it.”

    Molly, I am with you on the major disconnect. I think I did 2-3 good ones out of the 10. Elijah and Zack, thank you for being so patient with me!! This is another one to put on the list to accomplish.
