Aw yeah … a little snatching love for today’s WOD. Nothing like ending the week with the toughest freaking lift of them all.
1 RM Power Snatch
4 minute max Double Unders
4 minutes max Push Ups
But, didn’t we just do that the other day? You’re right. We did … but not Tabata style (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off). What’s amazing is that your numbers will be almost identical to when you did it straight through. Pretty interesting what those 10 seconds of rest bring.
Great job this week by all. We saw lots of PRs and even those who might have missed a PR were kicking ass with stronger form and overall work.
It’s another gorgeous day in May outside and it was another awesome day inside at Hypoxia. In honor of us reclaiming more of our wall space, we went ahead and added some Wall Balls to the mix … if only we added HSPUs to that, it would have been the most walltacular WOD ever. Hey, that’s a good idea. Wall Balls AND HSPUs in a WOD. Hmmm … will have to try that one day.
A big shout out to John L for his help this week in improving our gym space. John built us a new barbell holder that will enable us to remove our current racks from the back wall, creating more space for wall balls and handstand push ups.
Oh, wait. Maybe we should all punch John for creating this extra space!
Yeah, this is going to work out just fine!
It’s the awesome members of our community, like John and all of you, that help keep Hypoxia humming along and getting better and better all the time. Thank you, all, for everything you do to help and make our little corner of the CrossFit world so awesome.
And, if you happend to catch John in the next few days, please be sure to thank him … or punch him for making it easier for us to program wall balls, HSPUs and the like. Totally up to you .
P.S. Feel free to thank me, too. I worked my ass off. First, I had to watch John install it. Then I had to carefully remove the 35# and 45# signs and place them by the new barbell rack. I’m pretty tired but PR’d my sign moving!
Had a great celebration dinner after completing Angie, Fran and Murf back to back? That celebratory drink just might turn into 3 or 4. Better check into the Matternhorn Inn and Suites. No reason to drive your car into the gorge, the Matterhorn is right off Main Street. You could even get there doing the bear crawl!
