For Time:

75 Power Snatches (Health: 26lb KB Swings, Athletic*: 55lb, Performance: 75lb)

Scaling Guide: 20-50 reps (Barbell), 50-100 reps (Dumbbell). “Randy” - 3-8 minutes

Coaching Tips: If you know you’ll be able to get over 40 reps in this workout, scale up to 75lb / 115lb OR opt to do “Randy.”  Going a bit narrow on the grip for this one can help people move faster.  It shortens the distance so that you don’t have to bend over as far (which adds up over many reps).  It will also facilitate a bit of a press out when the hips just aren’t getting the bar high enough anymore.

“Randy” - Pace this one out so that you do a steady number each minute (not 1/2 in the first 2 minutes, then 1/2 in the next 6).  Use small sets and watch the clock to stay on pace.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 100m db/kb Farmer Carry, 30 cal Row, 3 rounds, OR 3 sets of 12 DB Curls in a super set with 12 DB Weighted Box Step Ups
