15:00 to warm up to heavy snatch


AMRAP, 5:00

  • 10 chest to bar pull ups
  • 10 alternating pistols
  • 10 hand stand push ups

Rest, 2:00

AMRAP: 5:00

  • 10 box jumps, 24"
  • 10 shoulder to overhead, 135#

I ended up reaching 170 pounds on snatch is a lot more than I have done previously when doing 80-85% as those workouts were based on a 1 rep-max of 125#. So I am very pleased with that!

For the first AMRAP, I scaled the first one to jumping pull ups. These are getting much easier. For the alternating pistols I used a stack of 25 pound plates to assist. Instead of hand stand pushups, I did pyramid pushups. These were moderately difficult. I feel that I am somewhere in between the pyramid pushups and hand stand pushups.

I got 2 full rounds followed by almost a 3rd round. I was short 3 more reps of pyramid pushups before the time elapsed.

For the second AMRAP, I didn't scale anything., however, I only completed 2 full rounds. I got 6 reps of box jumps into a 3rd round before the timer buzzed.
