6 rounds for time:
10 Dumbbell Squat Snatches (36 lbs)
First time in over 2 months I have finally had access to weights. Man makers is a go to movement for me, and I personally love Dumbbell squat snatches so it seemed like a solid workout.
Big mistake. This workout was painful and slow. Had break the DB snatches in half after the first round and all of the man makers were singles.
My focus was quick transitions and 5 second breaks between each reps. The weights felt heavier then I remembered but it was nice to pick something up from the ground.
I’m definitely going to be sore and I welcome it.
A movement that can always use work, Snatches. It’s so technical and intricate, yet when done right, it is the most elegant lift out there.
I am not one of those elegant lifters. I struggle to get under the bar and break my arms too early, however, it doesn’t stop me from working on my form. I use to think I needed a coach to watch my every lift to improve. I found a little drill work at home has helped me improve on my own.
Work up to a heavy triple Full Snatch 3-3-3-3-3-3
Score: 55-65-76-85-95-105 (couldn’t complete the last 2 at 105lbs)
EMO 90 Seconds for 21 minutes (14 rounds)
3 Full snatches at 70% of your triple (68 lbs)
6 Kettlebell swings (1.5 pood)
This workout will be definitely make me sore for the next few days, but it was great to get some more practice getting under the bar and not relying so much on the power position.
