EMOM for 10 Minutes

1 Hang Squat Snatch from below the knees

Our skillwork today is the squat snatch. For this variant we’ll be working from the hang and specifically starting from below the knees. That means you will perform a snatch grip deadlift to hip height and then lower the bar down to below your knees. As you lower the bar down into the start position practice tracing the route you expect the barbell to travel as you perform the lift.  Stop momentarily with the bar below the knees and then perform the full lift.  The BTN snatch will most likely increase the difficulty level of the lift for you so for that reason warm up to about 60% of your 1RM before deciding what weight to work with.

WOD

3 Rounds for time

200M Uneven Farmer Carry
50 Air Squats
50 Double Unders

Workout notes: The farmer carry does not have a prescribed weight but you are encouraged to challenge yourself. If you are able to complete the entire 200M lap without rotating arms at the halfway point you may have gone too light. Either way, make sure that you distribute the work evenly across both arms by switching at the halfway point or by switching every round.
