- Lightweight snatches are hard. Yes thats right we said. Lightweight IS hard! Why you say?? It is because you are have a weight on the barbell that is highly movable and you have no reason to stop other than being gassed out from your buzz-lightyear pace!!
- CrossFitter’s will inherently tell you they prefer a heavy barbell in workouts. This is likely because they know they will be getting heaps of rest in that WoD. Problem is they are turning their workout into a low intensity strength workout. Not today my friends. Today we haul ass!
- Choose a weight that you know you could move for 15 reps if fresh (think back to “Randy” last week. Did you do 20+ reps to start with? Then maybe today add 2.5kg to the bar. If not then keep the weighty as it is and get used to moving it more efficiently.
- The V-Up will sneak up on you very quickly. This ab move is hard to maintain. If you are doing this “as prescribed” then you will reach over the knees with near straight or dead straight legs. The V-tucjk is a very credible scale should you not be able to reach over the legs.
- Hold the standards. Form is priority as always.
- Scale As needed.
