Strength

Back Squat 3-3-3-3-3

Spend some time working up to a strong effort back squat.  You shouldn’t be working up to failure but to a weight that is challenging and doesn’t compromise form.  Remember to keep your torso upright and push back on the bar through the entire range of motion. With the back squat your chest will be forward a bit depending on where you put the bar but you should maintain that angle from start to finish.

WOD

In front of a clock set for 12 minutes:

1 minute of Double-unders
1 minute of Kettlebell Hang Snatch 24/16kg
2 minutes of Double-unders
2 minutes of Kettlebell Hang Snatch 24/16kg
3 minutes of Double-unders
3 minutes of Kettlebell Hang Snatch 24/16kg

Workout notes: This couplet features a time priority format introduced at CrossFit.com.  Your score will be the total number of repetitions you complete of each movement so make a good effort with both. It will be extremely hard for most people to triple their work completed in the first round so consider cutting it a little short there  as you anticipate spending more time at each station as the workout progresses.
