Hang snatch + Snatch Complex
“Wodapalooza Qualifier #8”
60 Deadlift (115/85)
Strength day! Today we work to establish a working heavy snatch complex: the hang snatch+full squat snatch. As we often like to remind everyone (and ourselves) the snatch is the most technical, most difficult of lifts, so be patient with yourselves and let’s take plenty of time to review the lift and then work up(VIA SMALL JUMPS) to a heavy weight for the day. You can’t beat the snatch – at least not in terms of things we can do with the barbell for developing explosive strength, ridiculous traps, and extreme athleticism.
The conditioning portion today is a lovely little chipper consisting of the deadlift, directly into overhead squats and then finishing us off with shoulder to overhead. The weight on the bar is to remain the same throughout the wod, yet the lifts become increasingly difficult as reps decrease. When approaching this WOD it’s important to not overdo it from the beginning…despite the weight being relatively low for the deadlifts, it does not mean one should knock out all 60 deadlifts in one fell swoop. Let’s plan to break up the reps so that you may stay strong throughout verses blowing up within the first minute and having nothing left by rep 65. After all, it’s Friday and we’ve crushed it so far this week…let’s finish even stronger!
