17.3 Squat Snatch, Snatch Squat, Sasquatch… What?
17.3 – On the Rig Again
Week 3 of the open workouts brought something I wasn’t expecting… chest to bar pull-ups. Week 1 had T2B, Week 2 had Muscle-Ups so I thought they would skip the rig for Week 3. Guess I was wrong on that one. The squat snatch wasn’t a surprise though. We knew a heavy lift was headed our way.
We don’t squat snatch very often so I was a little nervous about the members doing this workout. But I was pleasantly surprised to watch one member after another complete some really solid squat snatches. I was also happy with the chest to bar pull-ups. Lots of members were hitting their chest every time and some of them didn’t even know that they could do C2B! I think performing the pull-ups in singles was key for some people.
What will 17.4 bring? I’m predicting/hoping for rowing or doubles. Maybe handstand push-ups, another heavy lift or perhaps a max lift in the first minutes of the workout and then moving on to an AMRAP. Regardless, 17.4 is guaranteed to be fun!
