A short little burner today. We will spend a big part of the Skills portion on the Power Snatch, warming it up and then going heavy for 10min. The Power Snatch load is aimed to be a moderate weight, but still doable for 3 reps unbroken each round. Some people might need to drop each rep, that is ok as long as you can transition quickly and pick it right back up again.

Top performers should aim to get around 12+ rounds. Most people will get around 10 rounds. We want you to work really hard to do it all unbroken. The reps are low enough for you to be able to achieve this. Something to focus on during this workout too is giving yourself the goal of starting the next movement as soon as you get to the piece of equipment. Try see how long you can walk right up to it and pick it up without resting. You will be surprised at how it doesn’t actually feel that bad! It’s only 7min.
