Snatches Ladder

First, I an doing this quick post on my phone so, please bear with the errors.  Yesterday’s workout was a “Breathing Ladder”.  After every set you are to take the same number of breaths as the amount of reps just completed.  So, one snatch, one breath.  Then two snatches, two breaths.  Then three snatches, three breaths.  Get the picture?  We went up the ladder 1 to 20.  Then came back down 20 to 1.  We were told 400 snatches.  I used a 35 pound kettlebells.  What I found out was you really need hand protection.  I have never worn any and proud of my callous palms.  Tough workout and I have this for a prize…



Workout 13.1

Since The Open of the CrossFit games started last week our coach decided he wanted to use their Workout 13.1 on us.  It was slightly modified to incorporate the use of Kettlebells.

Workout 13.1
17 minute AMRAP of:
40 Burpees
20R/20L Snatch,  25 lbs.
30 Burpees
20R/20L Snatch, 35 lbs.
20 Burpees
20R/20L Snatch, 55 lbs.
10 Burpees
Max rep Snatch, 70 lbs.

In the 17 minutes, I was able to get all the way through the 55 lbs. Snatch.  I guess I would have failed the CrossFit 2013 number one workout.   Anyone with me that Burpees are not very fun?

We ended with 5 minutes of Cleans and Presses then 5 minutes of Abs.
