*Keep adding 5 double unders every minute until you cannot complete the req’d reps for that minute
If you are not able to string 5 or more double unders scale with a double under to single under ratio of 1:2.
Also, take 5-10 minutes after the WOD to work on your double unders.

Big thank you to the NFL for bringing the Pro Bowl teams to Luke AFB for their practice last Thursday. Looking forward to a great week of fun with the Super Bowl hitting next Sunday!

Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics. To do these successful, set up for your normal snatch, go through the first and second pulls. Don’t rush through. Move as you would for a regular snatch. When hitting the top of the second pull, achieve triple extension and shrug up HARD, but don;t camp out at the top. Just like in normal snatch, you want to hit this high point fast and then quickly drop (with these, instead of dropping under the bar, you are dropping back to your start).

Video courtesy of Barbell Shrugged. Just wanted to make sure you guys knew the difference between a Drop Snatch, a Snatch Balance, and a Heaving Snatch Balance. For today, we will be doing the Snatch Balance, so start with the bar on your back, hands out at snatch grip, feet under the hips. Give a slight dip down (very shallow), then extend the hip and DROP under the bar, extending the arms at the same time. Feet should land and shoulder width (just like a squat).

A) 5×2 Snatch Pull @ 110% of 1RM Snatch B) 5×5 Free standing Handstand Push Ups*
*A and B work is done as supersets. For example, perform a set of 2 Snatch Pulls rest 60 seconds, then perform the 5 Free Standing HSPUs, then rest 60 seconds. Repeat until all sets are complete
Best way to get in position for these is have an ab mat or skull mat under your head, get in a tripod position first, then extend legs up so you hold a headstand. From here, you can either try to push arms to lockout or bend the legs into a squat, then extend violently to kip to the top of a HSPU. Either way, keep your balance, and come back down with control. If you have yet to master a HSPU against a wall, I suggest scaling to either doing HSPU against a wall or work HSPU negatives against the wall, or holding a handstand.
