Snatch Crazy

Nothing helps you recover from your Super Bowl hangover quite like explosive hip extension.  We begin working on snatch technique with a complex similar to the one we recently used for the clean.  Work on each piece, determine where you can improve the most, and work a little more.  Then we’ve got a chipper, from last year’s Central/South American Regional featuring a couple straight forward movements sandwiching 30 power snatches.  This is a great chance to get lots of practice in on this technical movement in a couple different environments.

    Had one moment of “wow- that was the best snatch feeling ever”, so that was fun.
    WOD: ended up doing 65# (kind of a blunder but good for form work)- time 10:02 def could have been more focused and went after the snatches more aggressively.

    16″ box (started at 20″ but was dogging…better to rebound)
    just the 15k bar – first time going overhead in 2+ weeks. shoulder feels good so far. YEAH!
    my rowing is just wrong. Looking forward to working with stacy to figure out my timing.

    WOD — 11:44 @ 25kg. I’d have liked to put up 30kg but I’m still in the “rip it off the ground as fast as possible with poor technique” phase. Glad that I didn’t take any wuss breaks during the 1k though, as I had serious doubts about that going into the evening.

    Nice work everyone…onward!
