Happy Birthday Jarrett!
As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 minutes of:
65 lbs. Power Snatches, 12 Reps
10 Push ups
For a completely unrelated note, but excellent blog on Hero workouts take a look at this post.
Today's workout included Power Snatches. A "power" variation of any movement is essentially an incomplete version of the full thing. By incomplete I mean that you don't do the full thing. In a power snatch or clean, you land above parallel but with bent knees. Many people find the power movements to be easier because they are less reliant on technique and more responsive to strength. What I mean by this is that some people find it easier to "muscle" a power snatch up than to do the full thing. I know I do. However this is a fallacy, better mechanics in the full snatch will translate to a better power snatch. The opposite is not true. It will however increase strength in certian areas for the full snatch.
That's all I really got for today, as I've been out sick since Monday. Hope everyone has had a good week. See y'all tomorrow if I don't see you today.
