Sunday morning kicked off with a little Snatch work. With a smaller than usual class, we approached this differently than I might at other times. After warmup reps, moved into a competition format, with everyone getting 3 attempts. What became quickly apparent is that the strength is there, but the technique has a ways to go. Nearly everyone power snatched, and ended up pressing out the weights. Expect to see lots of OHS and skill transfer exercises before we snatch again.
Once done with the lifts, we went to a “power Cindy”.
15 minute AMRAP
3 Clean and Jerk
At the same time across town, Tom A., Steve, Salty, and Ewunike were competing in Primal Fitness “DCs most Primal” challenge. The first event was a “floor to overhead” (everyone except Jim Beast Skills cleaned it, Jim went oldschool with the “continental”). I really liked the second event, combining parkour and sandbags. Unfortunately, Salty pointed out how someone could twist an ankle on the sandbag after the wall vault. In fact he mentioned it several times. guess who was the only person to do so? I’m not sure this wasn’t a ploy to get out of the last WoD to watch the US vs. Canada Hockey game,but still took him out of the competition.
The Final event was a 15 Min AMRAP of 300 M run/25 Double unders/ 10 Burpees. Josh Courage crushed this, almost finishing 7 rounds. Steve O pushed to finish his last round, getting the final 10 burpees finished in 10 seconds to seal a third place finish. Congrats! Also of note was Ewunike jumping in to compete with 2 days notice, and Tom A dusting off some spin moves he hasn’t used since high school.
