haah 30 reps of snatches at 70lbs is going to exhaust the fuck out of you. Don't forget you're doing burpee's with a target, that's annoying in itself. I don't imagine many people will make it through 20 snatches at 135. I seriously doubt even I would without seriously injuring myself.

The workout is stupid, I've chosen to pass.

Just got done with it.

Got 103 reps... basically got 3 @ 135 lol. Feel good about it though, never done a Snatch w/o with more than 95# so pretty amped on getting 3.

Fucking brutal...pace yourself on the burpees, no reason to rush through them...

congrats brotha, snatching that much weight fast requires someone who's very sound with technique, you can't muscle snatch 135-136 for 20 reps. You're just asking to get hurt.

142 reps for me Was hoping for 150, but damn I have never done power snatches that heavy after 70 burpees, lol.

Yeah, 135 was heavy as fuck. I'm not a strong guy by any means, good technique got me through this for sure.

Peer pressure get to you? \:D Nice job man.

Honestly I think it was a pretty brilliant workout. It equally punishes people who are good at bodyweight movements vs. the big strong guys, so the two movements together are a really good equalizer.

The weights for the men were fucked IMO...but I agree the design was good, too heavy if you ask me

Not necessarily... You have to realize that if you think you have any shot at competing at the games, your minimum snatch should be around average 270lbs, back squat around 400lbs, and deadlift around 5-600, clean needs to be 300... these are all calculated by men who compete.

So if you want to qualify to make it to regionals you have to be able to compete with those dudes, so that's where the weights for the men come from. And people are punishing themselves left and right and a huge debate is going on about steroids right now since supposed testing is done, but who sees the results and what official athletic commission recognizes the cf games?

Really I hate to sound sexist, and I'm not sure what good weights for the women are, but I don't really think anyone gives a shit to be quite honest. As long as they're out there in booty shorts, and branded up looking hot. It's only when it comes to the games that the weights start to get heavy.

Most people aren't trying to beat Rich Froning, and to be honest with you, Kenneth Leverich if he's healed will probably come closest if Matt Chan doesn't get injured.

I just attempted a noob version of Grace. Never done a clean and jerk so I set up 135lb... nope. I could get 30 reps at that weight but it would take me a half hour. I dropped to 115 and I cleaned... then jerked. There was a slight pause as I regained composure so I'm not sure if the movement counts but I did it anyway. Took me a little over 5 minutes to complete.

This is a workout I want to complete on Saturdays over the next few weeks to see how I progress.

I would probably work on your pull, hang cleans as well to build up forearm and grip endurance, and push jerks.

A favorite of mine for strength building is every minute on the minute for whatever set amt of minutes you choose at 60-80 percent of your one rep. Whatever time left in the minute is your rest before going into the next set.

The other is death by x, which is a variation of death by burpees. We tried death by power clean at 135... worst fucking idea ever, I've never been so out of breath in my life.

It's similar to an emom, but you add a rep each minute. Whoever can't complete their reps within the minute lose.

I like this idea. You're not so good handling balls.

Looks like a cool wod! I think I can do well on 13.2 - weights aren't too heavy and are in my wheelhouse \:\)

Agreed. 5 minutes for Grace @ 115 is fairly solid. Cleans take a lot of practice. I've been doing CF for 4 years and only now feel like I'm really good at them.

Anyone do 13.2 yet? Did it this morning and 226 reps. Box jumps are definitely the limiter with this one.

Lots of people were stepping up and not jumping. That seemed to help the numbers.
