Hump Day!

Seriously wanted to sleep in today.  I'm tired.  But, I'm on the home stretch headed for vacation, so I made myself get up and work out this morning.

As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:

10 Toes to bar
10 Box jumps (Men 24” box, Women 20” box)
10 Hang squat snatch (Men 75#, Women 55#)(bar must go below the knee on each rep)

My rounds:  5 + 4 box steps (164 reps)
I stepped the box instead of jumping but all else was Rx.

The complicating factor (there is always one, it seems) in this WOD was the "bar must go below the knee on each rep". Holy cow, what a game changer!  Hang snatches are a piece of cake compared to having to drop below the knee each time.  I was exhausted after the first round!  I split everything up a with lots of rest breaks, and thought somewhere in round 3 I might actually puke.  But I didn't.  :)

Strength today was Squat Snatch - 10 singles

My loads:  40-45-50-55-65-70-75-80-85-90
