Monday's Workout

Strength Skill:

Power Snatch

Nailing the power snatch is going to be a challenge. It requires more complex movements than I'm used to, and only with lots of practice will my body get used to powerfully cranking the barbell over my head in one smooth, explosive lift. But I'm getting there; even with just one twenty minute session, I've improved more than I expected.


AMAP (As Many As Possible) in 10 minutes:
  • 10 Barbell Front Squats
  • Max rep full-range push-ups (with hands off the ground at the bottom of each push-up)
Result: I ended up doing 5 rounds of front squats and push-ups. My push-up reps: 37, 21, 14, 11, 10 -- 93 total.

I'll be lucky if I can move my arms before tomorrow.
