I failed to post anything for yesterday’s workout so I’m trying to make up for it now.
Three rounds of
15 wall squats
“Burgener Warm Up” / Snatch technique
30 Snatches for time (18kgs)
Tabata (20secs work, 10secs rest)
8 rounds push-ups (6 reps)
8 rounds sit ups (7 reps)
I think this must’ve been what we were preparing for last Saturday. For the first time ever, I get to incorporate Snatches into the WOD. Actually, its the only thing that needed to be done for the WOD!
Since they post the workouts in the morning, I had the whole day to contemplate how much weight I was going to go for. Keeping in mind that my 1RM so far is 25kgs and that I need to do 30 reps, I figured that a humble 18kgs would do. I finished 30 in 2:33. I could probably have gone higher on the weight and possibly taken longer but I’ve come to realize that this is typical post workout musing. It’s done and I was happy with it, next time I know I can go higher on the Snatch.
Technique wise, I’m not sure. Eamonn did say that I was a little too jerky on the movements so I guess I have to catch that next time. I’m just happy that I’m not that afraid of the Snatch anymore :).
