Life of Chanel – Seventeen Point Three – CrossFit Open Workout

Week Three and the announcement is Full Snatches and Chest to Bar pull ups.  This week is for the strong people … as the ladder goes up to very heavy snatches.  The announcement itself was a little confusing, but once you got your head around it … it was a little easier to understand.

here is the workout:


I knew going into the workout that I was not going to be able to finish the workout as my snatch is not heavy enough.  Even tho the first round is light, it still got gassy very fast cycling between the chest to bar and the barbell.  The 43kg snatch were ok, and I had a plan going into the next round.  I would lift 50kg, 55kg then try the 61kg.  This is what happened.  I got the 55kg – which was a PB … and then got under the 61kg but couldn’t stabalise it.

I tried to re-do on the Monday morning, and a similar thing happened … although I made a bit of a mess of a few of the 43kg reps, stopping me from getting a faster split time.  Sometimes I guess trying to rush you sacrifice form.  173

So … its clear I need to work on my lifting in the next year.  It is certainly a lot weaker than my fitness.
