Barbell Class October 7, 2014

I only did the barbell class today and did not do a normal WOD. The timetable changed, making it impossible to fit a class before.

I forgot to take a picture of the workout written on the board. And I find it impossible to remember the terms used for the different techniques. But I’ll try to remember what we did.

We started again with some mobility and warmup and practiced our footwork. Same footwork drill as last two weeks, but now we also did box jumps.

After that we did various practice movements.. tempo squats and snatch movements but broken down into little parts. We focused on the part where you go overhead.

Then we did a 5 minute EMOM of 2 “power snatches!” but where you would already be standing with the weight in end of deadlift position before snatching it up. And then 2 power snatches from the ground. I did them with 55 lbs.

After that we did 3 sets of 10 front squats with a 3 second hold in the bottom and then driving up fast. And 3 sets of 10 front squats where you go up a little bit from the bottom position (to just above parallel) then go down again and immediately drive up. I did a little less reps in each set (sometimes 8 sometimes 6) as, especially with the holds at the bottom, I was starting to feel a little bit faint (low blood pressure :( ).

We ended with some stretching.

Nice session again!!
