The dreaded Snatch ladder; high volume and an increasing weight. The Snatch is the most technically difficult barbell lift, and something we all need a lot more work on. This workout could have been discouraging, but I want you all to realize that even though our scores were low, almost everyone did the workout as RXed. That is a psychological victory.
We'll work on the Snatch throughout the month of March, breaking it down into four stages (the initial pull, finishing the pull and catching the bar, getting under the bar, standing up with the bar). After a month of strength work on these components of the Snatch, we'll put it all together again in April and test our progress.
CrossFit RHC is a small group personal training class that optimizes fitness by using varied functional movements performed at high intensity. Using a combination of barbell training, bodyweight gymnastics, and cardio, CrossFit prepares you for any physical contingency known and unknown.
