30 Power Snatches (135/95)

Starting the day off by building to a heavy single power snatch. Following this, athletes will complete the CrossFit benchmark workout, “Isabel”. The weightlifting piece is a great opportunity for the group to build the skills and positions of the power snatch that will assist them in improving their previous “Isabel” times. Athletes should build to something heavier than they will use in the conditioning piece. Within the workout, athletes should use a weight that they are capable of completing 10-15 repetitions unbroken if they had to. Rather than undoing what was done in the weightlifting skill piece before, the focus today is in improving the power snatch over the course of 30 repetitions. Going a little lighter to accomplish this is more important in the long run than clicking “Rx”.
