Following the example of Regionals

Everyone is watching the highlights from the Regionals which are happening right now.  One of the surprising events for the athletes was dumbbell snatches: 100# for men, 70# for women.  One arm at a time, going from the ground to overhead in a smooth motion. Pretty friggin' beastly.

So we got to do it too!  Of course, the heaviest dumb bell we have is 55# so rumor has it we will be getting some new weights soon.  Prescribed weight for women was 35# and 55# for men during our workout.  I did it lighter, but I still felt like a bad ass while I was hauling that weight up in the air!

5/3/12 WOD #45

  • Warm up: 500 m row
                    3 min jump rope work
                    2x: 10 OHS
                          10 Push ups
                          10 Back extension
                          10 second HS hold
  • WOD: 4 minute row for distance: 768
               4 minute AMRAP 5 HSPU, 5 strict pull ups (green band): 3 rds + 6 reps
               4 minute AMRAP 20 m farmer's carry (started with 20# and switched to 35#), 20 DU: 3 rds
               4 minute AMRAP DB snatch (20#): 16 snatches each arm
For some reason, the snatches made my feet cramp up.  Ah well.
