Strength & Skill
A heavy is the load an athlete can move with *exceptional* form. Imagine the athlete is going to be videotaped on CrossFit.com as a movement demo.
Snatch Balance (Build to Heavy Single)
Overhead Squat (Build to Heavy Single)
Squat Snatch (Build to Heavy Single)
Snatch weight should be something that the athlete could go unbroken for 15+ reps, when fresh. The Wall Ball weight is heavier than normal & should allot for a good squat stimulus. Although challenging, all WB reps should go unbroken.
Strategy: It will be easy to get sucked into wanting to go all out on the snatches at the beginning, but find a rep tempo that won’t leave you gasping for air 2-3 min into the workout. Small sets based on tempo time might be your best bet.
