On Wednesday we’re working on the power snatch. If you’re relatively new to the movement, or still building your confidence with it, this will be a great opportunity to work on technique. If you feel comfortable with the snatch, go big, see what you can get overhead, even dropping into a full squat snatch if necessary. The effort put in during tomorrow’s strength portion of class will pay immediate dividends when you need to get the weight overhead for squats during the metcon, featuring low reps and a high degree of skill.
