20 minute EMOM
3 reps of Full Snatch starting @ 65% of 1 rep max
Now when I say ‘snatch’ I mean a full on squat snatch. My coach is very much into the power lifting and olympic style weightlifting so the terminology is slightly different. “Clean” means a ‘squat clean’ and “Snatch” means ‘squat snatch’ unless otherwise stated to be a: power clean, power clean from high hang, power snatch, power snatch from high hang, etc.
I know it’s a little confusing, I see elite athletes like Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet specifying that she did ‘squat cleans’ or ‘squat snatches’ so I figure the majority of crossfitters go by that terminology as well.
Anyhoo, started at 70lbs., when I was supposed to start at 65 lbs. I only went up to 85 lbs. (1 rep max is 105) mostly because I haven’t worked on snatches in almost a month and wanted to focus on getting the technique and movement down. After this workout my friends peer pressured me into trying to max out at 110 lbs. since I was still ‘warm’. I wasn’t feeling it, my left shoulder blade has some sort of nerve issue going on and my right hip flexor was really tight. I couldn’t even lift that bar to my hips. Oh well. Another day when I’m not feeling cruddy, haha.
On a side note, my form was so good (for the most part) that coach used me as an example for several people in class today and even had me coach a few afterwards. It was a fun and rewarding experience.
