A. Power Snatch – quickly build to tough single; rest as needed (ends if you miss)
This piece was good, I felt good with the movement and my speed, I missed at the end trying to catch it too high and the bar got out in front of me a little. Weights & videos below. 135-155-175-185-195-205-215-225 maybe power-225 miss
225 borderline power
12 DL @ 135#
8 HPS @ 135#
These were much more difficult than expected, mainly on the grip. Not sure if that’s just leftover fatigue from DT or I need grip strength work, but that was the main limiter here for the HPS. Times & videos below.
1:56 grip = limiting factor
Row – 500m @ 1k pace
Rest – 3:30
We texted about this one too. My first 3 rounds were great and then I just hit a wall and got crushed. I felt like I couldn’t straighten my legs, my quads were destroyed. My breathing became erratic all of a sudden and I did everything I could to pull a 1:46. The first 3 were all 1:35s and I thought I was going to make it, this just came out of nowhere. I’m not going to say I’m excited to do this again because it wasn’t fun, but I’ll be excited when I make it all the way through because I think this is a significant test.
