Tuesday we’re working on the world’s fastest lift. When snatching an object it goes from the ground to overhead in the blink of an eye. What sort of magic is this? No trick, just explosive hip extension. To snatch you must be fast, and move aggressively. Snatching is also the best way to get a barbell into position for an overhead squat if you don’t have a squat rack at your disposal, like in tomorrow’s conditioning workout. Practice the snatch, then put it to use in this rowing, sprint mini Nancy.

***No Invasion this Saturday, October 16th
Work on your agility, coordination, and balance. Join your CrossFit Fenway friends at the Havana Club in Central Square on Saturday, October 23rd at 9 PM, for a night of salsa dancing, socializing, and fun. Lessons and libations are available to help you learn the moves. Like any WOD, proper footwear can help performance, so try to avoid rubber-soled shoes that will grip the floor and make turning more difficult.
Compete in the most physically demanding obstacle course available on Saturday, November 13th in Marshfield at Ruckus Boston 2010. Stephanie Schneider is helping to organize the CrossFit Fenway team. Please contact her if you’d like to participate, as discounts are available for teams.
