6 a.m. feels mighty early when I didn’t even get done with CF last night until 7:30. But I like the 6 a.m. class better. It’s also much smaller, and I still need the indivuual attention… especially on things like the Snatch. Which, oh goody, we’re doing today.
Warm Up- the usual then with the broom stick warm up OHS, Power Snatch, Hang Snatch
SWOD: 1 Power Snatch + 1 Hang Snatch (squat snatch)
Might have done another set or two at 35, can’t really remember. The power snatch I felt like I could have done a lot more, but the full squat on the hang snatch is my limiter. These were definitely better and more confident that I’ve done them before, I think knowing I can get a lot more weight overhead comfortably helps that a bit as well.
Since I’m not yet awesome enough to do this WOD Rx, I did the following scaling:
Jumping muscle ups (these were SO pathetic)
In hindsight, I should have done the snatches. My right quad was cranky after the first few OHS, so I decided against it, but I will never get better at them if I don’t do them.
The jumping muscle ups were hilarious. I can’t even imagine what I must have looked like. MU’s are SO so so far off for me, I can’t really even wrap my mind around the fundamental movement, but it was fun to work on it a little.
It was also awesome to watch our resident 6 a.m. rockstar Nick bang these out like the bad girl they are. I think he went unbroken on the first two sets of them, and then did 4+1 on the last set. He was all swingy and gymnasticy and it was very cool.
