Movement Standards
This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell loaded to the starting weight. In the Snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders. This can be a muscle snatch, a power snatch, a squat snatch or a split snatch. A clean and jerk is not permitted.

Additional Notes
Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video above for full details. Each rep will be counted once the athlete clearly shows control of the barbell overhead. The athlete must be responsible for loading their own barbell to the appropriate loads during the workout. The same barbell must be used for the entire workout and they may not receive assistance when changing the loads. Using additional pre-loaded barbells is not permitted.

Equipment
To complete this workout you will need:
*One barbell
*Collars
*Plates to load to the appropriate weights for your gender and age group

    Such a fun afternoon at the gym!! Lots of people doing snatches and setting PRs!! The fun part of the Open is pressing far beyond whatever you think is possible…..

    Angie B.: “Amie, can you count my reps for the Open, and oh, by the way, my snatch PR is 65 lbs., so I don’t think I’ll get to the 75lb.”
    Me: “No worries – just see what you can do!”
    ……Angie gets to 75lbs. and snatches it easily. PR!!! And then she does it 29 more times….
    Me:”Angie, you’re a sandbagger. 65lbs. is NOT your PR” :)

    GREAT DAY TODAY!!! I’m so proud of everyone who tried the WOD, whether it was for an official open score or just for fun!!

    Angie, way to go! My snatch PR was 65 too. I did 50 reps. I’m pretty happy with that.
