...As in they leave you literally gasping for breath almost as soon as you start. Today was that WOD.
30 hang power snatches (Rx was 55#, I did 35#)
30 wall balls
First let me say that snatches are not my favorite move. Second I will say that I have been struggling with getting a 10-lb. ball up to ten feet and still getting a full squat each rep, so I went down in weight today. Forget about doing the Rx--I'm nowhere near that yet!
I scaled a lot today--I scaled the rounds back to 20 reps each, and did as much weight as I could and still do the movement completely, which wasn't that much. The lightest ball I could find was 6 lb. and even with that I was completely gasping for air. At least I know I reached the right level of intensity.
The good thing about WODs like this is that you get to do better on the next one.
