Monday's Workout

Happy Monday, y'all.

Strength Skill:
  • Snatch (5-5-3-3-3)

I did my best to pick up where I left off a couple of weekends ago at the Catalyst Athletics Oly lifting seminar, but I'm already rusty. Something tells me I need to grease this groove more.

Ideally, I'd like to get the point where snatching's like second nature, but right now, I still find myself running through a lengthy mental checklist before each rep. Hook grip? Check. Feet in pull position? Check. Knees back? Check. Elbows turned up? Check. Back arched? Check. Deep, tight breath? Check. It's a bit exhausting even before the weight leaves the ground.


For time:
  • 21 kettlebell swings (24kg / 16kg)
  • 21 burpees
  • 21 wallball shots (10' target, 20lbs / 14 lbs)
  • 15 kettlebell swings (24kg / 16kg)
  • 15 burpees
  • 15 wallball shots (10' target, 20lbs / 14 lbs)
  • 9 kettlebell swings (24kg / 16kg)
  • 9 burpees
  • 9 wallball shots (10' target, 20lbs / 14 lbs)
Ouch. This looked easy enough when Tim wrote it on the whiteboard, but by the start of the final round of burpees, it felt as though someone had poured hot lava in my shorts.

Result: 8:05 as RXed.
