EMOM for 10 Minutes
1 Power Snatch

Perform 1 Power Snatch every minute for a total of 10 rounds. The weight you choose should be in the  moderate effort range but consider this as primarily skill work.  An appropriate weight would likely be 65-70% or less for newer lifters. Consider starting with a weight you are very familiar with and increasing by small increments if  the lifts are going well.  The pace will be fairly rapid if you are lifting every minute so for that reason go a little lighter than you might with more resting time in between sets.


For time

Power Snatch 95/65 lb
Overhead Squat 95/65 lb

Workout notes: During the skill work you worked on a moderate effort power snatch for load and technique.  This metcon is meant to be on the lighter side so think about a weight that is probably much less than 60% of your max for both movements.  The overhead squat is always difficult and requires a good deal of mobility so make your best effort to squat below parallel and scale the movement and load if necessary!
