Tag Archives: Snatch



Strength: Power snatch 4×3@65%


WOD: 5 minutes to row as many calories as possible then in 5 minutes establish a 1 rep max ground to overhead. 

Score = calories + weight lifted

Score: 165 

I rowed 60 calories & lifted 105#. Attempted 115# but couldn’t get it overhead.




Max Clean & Jerk

Score: 115# (15# PR!!)

Max Snatch

Score: 75# (10# less than my last PR of 85#)

This time my breathing was an issue just lifting, not even doing a cardio-heavy workout. Boo! Hiss! Down with exercise-induced asthma!!! I went to see my doctor this morning & he prescribed an inhaler & some new meds to deal with the allergies. Hopefully this isn’t something that will continue to be a problem but at least I have some tools to help manage it for now.

I completed my first CrossFit Open WOD. And I’m really happy with my score. When I watched the live announcement, I was super bummed at first. I knew there was no way I could snatch 100# even once, much less 30 times. My one rep max snatch was done just a month ago & I got 85#. But as I watched Dan Bailey and Scott Panchik go head-to-head I started to realize that I wasn’t even going to make it to the 100# snatches, so I didn’t need to worry about it.

I set my goal for 101 reps. I knew I could snatch 75# at least once. I wanted to make it through the first two sets of burpees and get as many as I could of the second set of snatches and that’s exactly what I did. Those burpees SUCKED. SUCKED!!! The first oh, twenty or so were ok but man, it didn’t take long for me to lose the bounce in my step. I no-repped on 3-5 snatch attempts in the last round and my form was just awful throughout (it was very awkward doing snatches with just the 5lb plates, totally threw me off) but I exceeded my goal and for that I am happy and proud.
