  1. Katie says:

    Even though I was doing the Open, since I hadn’t been able to do any DUs in 8+ months, I figured it wouldn’t be a good workout so I decided to do class in addition. (Note to everyone: DON’T DO THIS.) The freaking mountain climbers in the warm-up nearly killed me. I was mad on the first couple rounds as I continued to fail on my DU attempts. And then, out of nowhere, I got one. Then 5 more in the 90 seconds!!! Whaaaa???

    I worked at 35# on the snatches and subbed 20 lateral hops over a band since my hips shift when I hop over the bar. Still working on snatch form, specifically launching the bar from my hips.

    Good class. And then the Open workout…see next post…
