Snatch work!

Feb 26th 2012 -
Burpee Challenge Day: 57

Last week we drilled on full extension of the ankles, knees and hips. We used the Hang Clean High pull to focus on getting the bar up and fast with the body and not the arms. Today we are going to do the same but for the snatch. Again we are going to focus on full extension and the shrug to get the bar moving. Will go over where you should be pulling from, grip and landing positions mainly. I will touch upon a few other things here and there as they come up.

*There is also Open Gym after the 12:00 Class. So don’t be afraid to come in for the open gym. AND today is the last day to submit scores for the Crossfit Games Open. We will be judging people today. I believe Kyle J and a few others will be doing it at 3:30. *

    Hope everyone’s kicking butt on the 1st Open workout – not fun being on the injured reserve. Living vicariously through you all, I’ve heard about some amazing amounts of burpees taking place over there – keep it up!

    I had the oppurtunity to witness something that I wanted to share with everyone. The quiet beast AKA. “Rocco” doing WOD 12.1 with only one working leg. That my friends was an inspirational example of focus,tenacity,athleticism,and determination. The fact that he stepped up to do the workout took a “gut check” that might have caused alot of people to give up and try again next year. Solid Work My friend !!!!
