DWM Fri 1/31/14
Felt good in the morning, nothing really to report about yesterday.
A. Power Snatch – build to heavy single; rest as needed
The power snatch felt pretty good today. The reps at 205 & 210 were right about parallel, so I’m gonna go ahead and count them. I did my best to keep my chest high through the first pull, which I see as my biggest problem in this lift. Videos below:
10 Burpees over the bar AFAP
10 Power Snatches @ 80% of “A” (Used 165 lbs)
Rest 90sec b/t sets
This WOD was hard. Not so hard I couldn’t do it, but harder than I expected to get the 165 lb power snatches. I think I did pretty well though feeling out when I had the strength to push the reps on the snatch and when I needed a second or 2 more rest.
Round 1 – 1:44
Round 2 – 5:24 (2:10)
Round 3 – 9:40 (2:46)
Round 4 – 13:42 (2:32)
Round 5 – 17:40 (2:28)
For time @ 100%
30 Deadlift @ 155#
30 Box Jumps @ 24″
Time – 1:38
This was pretty easy and I just went all out. I think it’s a good place to start, but the weight never really got difficult except maybe the last 3 reps or so and the box jumps weren’t terrible. We know that these are 2 movements I like though, so I guess that makes sense.
