Re: El Capitan's Crossfit Log

5 x 3
First 3 sets were with feet on the ground, and last two were using a very thin band. I like using the band, never tried that before. Need to use a little lighter one though. I think I just need to work on my pull strength a lot.

CF Open 13.1

17 min AMRAP
40 Burpees
30 Snatch - 75#
30 Burpees
30 Snatch - 135#
20 Burpees
30 Snatch - 165#
10 Burpees
Snatch - 210#
Total Reps= 106

I got through 6 at 135#, but I missed 4 reps! I also rested a lot because I figured there was no way I was getting passed the 135# round. I did find a glaring weakness in my Snatch technique, I'm using way too much shoulder! I could tell because I missed my first 135# because my second pull was terrible and I could feel it all in my shoulders. After that I really worked at exploding off the floor. Missed a few more later, but 135 is heavy for me!
