Warm-up Drills
I. Run 400m or Row 500m
II. Foam Rolling
III. Dynamic Series
IV. Mobility Drills (Emphasis on hips, hammies, ankles, IT bands)

Impact/Focus: Snatch or Power Snatch
Warm-up sets and reps building to a starting weight of 50-60% by moving from an empty barbell through two light to moderate weight sets of 2-3 reps each.

7 Rounds on the :90 seconds of

Snatch x 3-3-2-2-1-1-1
(Climbing weight as able)

Notes:

Begin weight @50% to 60% or heavier of a Power or Full Snatch rep record if emphasizing the lift over preparation for the metcon that follows.
The Snatch moves through a full squat receiving position; the Power Snatch is received in the Power Position.
Emphasis today will be on barbell position from floor to full extension of the hips as well as efficiency and speed into the receiving position and additionally correct mechanics of the hip to get under the weight.
Working sets should be touch and go for today, barbell cycling emphasis review.

Warm-up Drills
I. Run 400m
II. Dynamic Drills
III. Mobility Drills

Impact/Focus: Push Jerk
*Warm-up as necessary, emphasis on Hip, Ankle, and Front Rack Mashing/Mobility between sets based on individual movement needs.

Every :90 seconds for 7 Rounds

Push Jerk 2-2-2-2-2-2-2

Notes:

  • Climb weight or work to the following Benchmark “Grace” weight and use the Impcact/Focus as a technique and warm-up rep session.
  • Weight may come from the rack or the floor based on athlete discretion.

Post scores to comments.

“Grace”
30 x Clean & Jerk (135/95lbs)

Notes:

  • Grace is one of the fastest CrossFit benchmark workouts.
  • Reduce the load as necessary, weighing proficiency with these Olympic lifts so you can perform multiple reps unbroken and complete all the reps in less than 10 minutes.
  • Athletes should take time to drill the mechanics of each movement; working at sub benchmark weights to warm-up for 7-10 sets of 1-3 reps x Clean & Jerk (emphatically suggested…).
