Burgener warm up into a Snatch

Where else but CrossFit can you use the word Snatch and not get in trouble? It’s funny how many terms that are used in weightlifting that are traditionally seen as sexual or male-centric. I’m not even going to mention them here — we all know which ones I am talking about. What is it about male-dominated sports/fitness that dictates this? Don’t even bother answering that — I already know.

Today’s workout was indeed the snatch.

Burgener Warmup – which is basically progression into a muscle snatch

Muscle Snatch

2m Double Unders = 30

I spent a lot of time working on form with the snatch — getting under the bar because that’s really where my form messes up. I can muscle up a lot of weight, until I get to a point where it’s too heavy and it becomes clear that my form is off. So until I am comfortable with the actual technique, my weight won’t be changing.
