Posted: September 20, 2012 by totactfit01 in Uncategorized

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!  Saturday’s Hero WOD is a special one that a member of STRATCOM has a personal tie with.  Please come out and do this one in honor of the fallen.

Strength/Skill:

Muscle Snatch:
5sets of 3reps @ 55% of 1RM
Sets start every 2 minutes

The muscle-snatch technique is a great way to cycle reps quickly, and the bar path should still be very tight to the body. Loopy bar paths are inefficient and undesirable—just as they are in the full squat snatch performed on a platform. O’Connor also covers the return to the ground, which is where you can greatly increase the cycle time by actively pulling the bar down for touch-and-go reps.

WOD:

3 Rounds For Time:
20 Pull ups
15 Pistols (alternating)
10 Sit Ups

5 Burpee Muscle Ups or… 5 Burpee Pull-ups + 5 Burpee Ring Dips
