2 MINUTE REST
30-20-10: BURPEE, HANG POWER CLEAN(135#), TOE TO BAR
2 MINUTE REST
5 MINUTES TO REESTABLISH A 1RM SNATCH
I came in feeling very tired and hungover from the ass kicking the niners gave the steelers last night and i only had about an hour to lift and condition. i knew i would not have the energy for two sessions today so i tried something different and combined them. i started with no warm ups and built up to a 225# snatch in the 1st 5 minutes, hitting 225 on the 1st attempt and failing 235 twice. nothing exciting there but i was happy considering the circumstances. the wod was brutal, especially on the grip and i finished in 10 minute flat. my grip was shot and i will never do toe to bars in my romaleos again, it felt like i was wearing ankle weights!..haha... the 2 minute rest went by very quick and i had nothing in the tank for the 2nd snatch. i went 135, almost missed it, 165, and 185 hitting all but with no grip the 2nd pull felt like i was standing on a mattress, no pop!. i took about 3 tries at 205 and couldnt stick it. i really like this structure of trying for a max effort lift immediatley following a workout but i think it would work better with something that wasnt so taxing. i liked being tired and still finding the energy and focus to snatch, but the grip was just too shot. i think ill try this structure again but for the conditioning part maybe just do double unders, burpees, running, rowing etc..something that is less taxing on any one part of the body. time to get some rest and recover for some full blown insanity tomorrow!
