Looks like a nice little workout, and I just recently learned the snatch movement. Don’t know about the HSPU. . . may have to use 2 ab mats in order to knock out that many.
Garret, I saw you learn the snatch….. you could probably scale up on this WOD.
Jason don’t encourage him to be “that guy”
its not about being “that guy” Scaling doesn’t always mean scale down, I heard neal explain it one time. Scaling up can be just as important to get the full purpose of the wod, everybody should be dead after a wod from a beginner doing 45# to Garret or Alan who might need to scale up to 115# or more to be challenged. Scaling is key buddy
Have y’all seen the Nike shirt “I’m that dude.” LOL. I don’t think I can scale up with that many reps. . . I’ve never done more than a couple of reps in a row on snatch.
another great t-shirt idea!
Damon already said we’re scaling up. If you dont like it, take it up with him. LOL
Really – so now we ALL have to scale up?
I like Burt’s point – scaling up is great with movements we are better/stronger with. But I will NOT scale up in OHS or Front squats just to say “I scaled up”. It not that I can’t do the movement or the weight – but sometimes having better form & full range of motion for every rep will lead to a better workout.
Also remember that though we can all throw 95 overhead it’s are we doing the snatch movement right and getting low under the weight.. Technique is everything in this game
Alan, I agree with you. But snatch is a movement that I am completely comfortable with and would like to challenge myself.
As for anything squat, I’m a down scaler fo sho. LOL
Yep – I will too – 135# Snatch?
not that comfortable!
HA HA HA
Mechanics… Consistency… THEN AND ONLY THEN intensity 🙂 there’s my post for the day
Insightful. Nice job Miranda.
Skill- 4×5 RX, 1×5 with 20# vest
WOD-8:40 RX+ (105#)
So, everybody was right about this WOD. Form got a bit sloppy in the round of 15. But the fatigue in the the round of 9 forced better mechanics.
Skill- Sucked, Still can’s get up on the wall, so had to use the bands and it wasn’t much better.
WOD- 12:27 RX, I really like this WOD….
good job Shawn, way to push it there at the end.
Skill- all rx
Switched up the WOD a little
21-15-9 snatches 95# ring push ups and 50 DU’s after each set 11:15ish cause I timed myself on my phone. My shoulders don’t like me right now
9:40 (65#) – Easing back into the weights. Feels good to lift again.
Went back at 6 to work on form.
45 snatch (75#) 3:35
7:02 RX – stayed with 95# to challenge myself to find a more efficient snatch technique.
Muscle snatch = not efficient
