11-07-25: Power snatch, reverse lunge, push jerk triplet

Elm City Crossfit WoD for July 25th, 2011
Spencer Hendel makes at least 185# look easy. If those are 35# on the ends, its 205#. If there are smaller plates on there, its even more. Bastage. (

WOD: 2x 6min AMRAP
  • 2 Power Snatches 95# 85#
  • 2 Overhead Reverse Lunge (or high-bar backsquat position) - each leg
  • 2 Overhead Squat (or push-jerk from the back of the neck position)
1min Rest @ 6min mark

Total score: 11 rounds even.

Way more time spent staring at the bar, trying to make the spots in front of my eyes go away, than I care to admit. First two rounds were as Rx'ed, until I failed on the final overhead squat. After that, I switched to the high-bar back-squat position for the lunges and replaced the overhead squats with push jerks.  All in all, a smoker of a workout. Full body devastation, baby!
