Can you do it unbroken?

Warmup (7 minutes)
One time through
20 Pull-ups
20 burpees
20 hollow rocks
20 air squats
50 double unders

Technique(10 minutes)
5×3 Tall Snatch -light
The tall snatch is simply the third pull of the snatch. It is begun with the lifter standing tall with no bend in the knees; some coaches will start the movement with flat feet and others on the toes. From this tall position, the lifter begins transitioning the feet from the pulling to receiving positions while pulling under the bar aggressively to receive it in the overhead squat position.

5×3 Snatch Pull From the ground
5-10lbs over max.
Work on pushing knees back, set up position, bar path, and speed through the middle.

Oly – (10 minutes)
3×1 Squat Snatch

WOD (20 minutes)
Double unders

After Party – Lower body roll session

    Pete O had to bail on his partner at Denham for IT issues so I jumped in and did the Turkey day WOD. Later on hit Briggsy 4 rounds of 8 cleans (205) 8 front squats (205) 8 pistols, 8 hspus. 13:01 – 1:30 faster than this time last year. BurntToast WOD today is somewhat wheelhouse so I’ll skip it and make up the snatches tomorrow.

    Dudley, I have a pair of Rogue Do-Wins which I think are great. Take that with a grain of salt though as they’re the only pair of weightlifting shoes I’ve ever had. I wear a size 9.5 which I think is the same size I wear in Inov8’s. You can try them on if you would like.

    people recommend any specific brand of weightlifting shoes? do the shoes generally run small or big?

    • Goose 12/04/2012 at 9:48 pm

      I like anything adidas. they generally run 1 size smaller than a genral sneaker unless you pick up the reebok oly which is the same as a sneaker.
