Kevin doing WOD #2 at the Open this Saturday. It was FUN! I thought I would totally hate the workout, but really liked it. Beth, Kevin and I met or beat our goals, which made it worth it. Check out the CrossFit Games site and get some serious inspiration!
Power Snatch Review
The workout below is much like Monday’s such that it really helped you all think about your positioning and executing the movements without necessarily being rushed. Great practice and short duration, explosive movements don’t burn you out. Notebook your loads, or post on Beyond the Whiteboard.
Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes:
2 Two-Position Power Snatches (move your loads higher as you move through this, as needed)
2 High Box Jumps
AMRAP: 6 minutes
3 Dumbbell Burpee Stand-ups (30/40)
6 Walking Lunges w/same dumbbells

This complex helped tremendously last week, so we are repeating it. Videos are linked with the words. Watch them & then watch them again.
Finisher: Partner up with someone, with a rower. You each have 3 x 600m rows at 24-26 strokes per minute technique practice. While your partner is rowing, practice your double unders. If you have double unders down, perform as many in a row as you can while still taxed from your row.
Beginner/Intermediate: Work on your timing and anticipation. Try clearing one or stringing them together.
Take a look at the added events to the right!
