Squat Snatch


Work up to a strong effort Squat Snatch.  That doesn’t necessarily mean you will max out today but work up to good weight for you while working on the mechanics of the lift.   If you are still learning the basics or working on your mobility keep the load light and catch the bar in a power snatch with a partial squat but try to ride the bar down as deep as you can while under control.  If squat snatching isn’t happening today due to mobility issues tackle a front squat for squat clean for the skill work and the workout!


For time


Overhead Squat 95/65lbs
Chest To Bar Pull-Ups

Workout notes:  Today’s workout is a variation on the CrossFit Open Workout 15.2/14.2 that some of our athletes will be attacking later on during our Open throwdown!  If your skill work when well today work on Squat snatching the first repetition of your overhead squat and moving through as many of each set as you can.  If squat snatching/overhead squatting isn’t happening today due to mobility issues switch the movement to a front squat an bump up the weight slightly.
