Doing an Rx workout is hard, but when you can pretty much do all the movements you gotta go for it!
But first we did a 9 minute Snatch EMOM. The first 3 minutes was 3 reps at 55%, then 3 minutes of 2 reps at 65%, and then 3 minutes of 3 reps at 55%. After warming up we jumped right in. I started out with 65#’s on the bar and added 10#’s for 75#’s for the middle 6 reps. The weights were challenging, but not crushing. I need to be more patient and wait for the extension before getting underneath the bar and work on consistently getting down to proper depth.
The MetCon was a 21-15-9 Triplet with a 13 minutes time cap. The 3 movements:
American Swing with a 50# Kettlebell
Toes to Bar
I finished in 11:30 and was the last one done in my class. Burpees usually slow me down and this was definitely the case. My toes to bar are also a little rough – I’m not getting a good enough kip to get the toes to the bar, but my knees are coming up to my chest, so that’s close! Plus I just really started. I had to break them down into sets of 3.
