Workout of the Day: Friday, 8.23.13
Slow it down, some relevant thoughts from Diane Fu:
“Most of us will be snatching loads well under what we can deadlift so what’s the rush? We know we can handle picking the barbell up. Try instead doing a 3, 2, 1 count as you come off the floor; and as soon as you pass your knees, accelerate and complete your extension with a viciousness that would make your mama proud.”
Below, Lux prepares to snatch 215lbs. at CrossFit Generation this past weekend.

If your time two weeks ago was between 5-10+ minutes attempt the same load. These can be power snatches.
