    3 Rounds + 1 (Main Site Rx – 135 lb and 15 GHD)

    I learned the value of keeping your shoulders active and engaged in OHS – the hard way. I dropped the bar on my head. Don’t make my mistake.

    I did this WOD earlier this week, and my abs are still sore from GHDs — 4rds + 3 PP.

    Rusty – I’ve dropped an OHS on my head before – it does hurt. 🙂

    Is CWG Brent?

    Did this with the 6am kids

    165# power snatch
    175# squattish snatch

    Wod: main site rx’ed (135# and 15 ghd Situps)
    3 rounds + 7PP + 2OHS

    everything failed me on round 2 of the OHS, I somehow rallied (sort of) and got a little further. Everyone don’t snatch the weight, do a jerk from the back instead will save your shoulders!

    Awesome day today.

    Snatching is the most explosive, practically versatile lift in the business. If you want to be the best possible crossfitter, you HAVE to learn how to snatch. No way around it. You are using every major muscle group, legs, back, core, shoulders, and they all have to fire on all cylinders while maintaining balance and focus. There is a limit to how powerful you can get doing pushups and situps. You need those things too, BUT you will never hit new PR’s or be able to do wods Rx’d if you don’t lift…and the Snatch is the King of all lifts.

    So, please come today and engage in the uncomfortable, the “outside your comfort zone”, and the intimidating…

    And Snatch.
