Second time hitting our Snatch complex for this cycle.  %s increase, so time per set will increase as well.  Each time you hit this complex, make that first snatch as perfect as possible, return the bar to the hang, load up the hips and really use that hip extension to move that bar up so you are able to drop under FAST.  Once you stand up with the bar, keep stable as you perform that last OHS.


For Time*:

1000M Row

200 Double Unders


Break up any way you want

*Starting at 0:00 and every 2 Min – 200M run


Time Cap: 16 Min

Think of this like those old “choose your own adventure” books.  The way you break up the reps as distance in the double unders and row are totally up to you, as long as you complete all work within the time cap.  But, don’t forget about the kicker!  Every 2 min, you will hit a 200M run.  This will basically give you about a minute of work time to chip away at those dubs and rowing.  Feel like changing your strategy now?  My suggestion: break the loads up into 4.  Aim to knock out a forth of that load when you come in from the run.  If you don’t finish before the next run, that’s okay.  Pick up where you left off when you come in from the next run.  Then once you finish that fourth of the load, move on to the other movement and get that fourth done.  Keep that going until all work is done….or come up with your own plan.  What will work best for you?…

Scaling Options:

Double Unders -> 400 Single Unders

200M run -> 250M row -> cut run to 100M
