3.6 - 3.12

Congratulations on getting through another Open workout in 17.2!

In 17.2, we saw dumbbells again! We STILL wouldn’t be surprised if they come up on another workout. Congratulations to everyone who got their first T2B or Bar MU in the workout. Way to show up on game day!

This week we continue to put all of our previous strength work to action. Manage your recovery well throughout the week. It is MUCH better to take a day off from training and mobilize than grinding through another workout while your body is still recovering. Be smart and talk to your coaches. Scale movements and WODs as needed. We begin the week with an active recovery day.

X is the same throughout the workout. You must tell the coach your “X” before the workout and write it on the board. Choose wisely from the start.*

Snatch Ladder

EMOTM, complete 2 reps at the given weight and move up the ladder until you fail on a rep. Then rest for 5 minutes and start from the bottom of the ladder again.

Your score is the combined weight of your highest successful lifts in the two rounds.

You must complete both reps at the weight for in to “count.”

Touch and go is fine but not mandated. As the weight gets heavier, touch and go probably won’t happen. Don’t force it.
