at >85% of my snatch, i gravitate to pwr snatches. perhaps i should add in some "heavy" sn balance singles as warm up? any other assistance exercises you would suggest?

EC -

You can try warming up with snatch balances, but tall snatches may work better. Try doing tall snatch + snatch as you work up, then drop the tall snatch when you can no longer do it.

Snatch 2 sets of 1 @ 125lb
C&J 2 sets of 1 @ 160lb
FSq 2 sets of 2 @ 170lb

2 rnds - 1 min btw rnds:
sub'd 20 Pushups & 20 med. Box Jumps for Sprawl
20 Pullups
sub'd 20 DB OH Chops for BallSlam
500m Row

placing the row at the end of a metcon was dastardly!

That was "fun". XX and I did the workout together, and not having the ball weights we needed - we mixed the weights to average ~10%. First round SB w/12 lbs and BS w/26 lb. 2ns round SB w/20lb and BS w/8lb.

We ran a couple of classes thru this one, too. Good workout.

Agree w/ Scotty that was "fun"... although I don't have weights, so I just did the metcon portion. It felt the perfect balance between muscular exhaustion and cardiorespiratory endurance (for me, at least), which is to say, I was breathing very, very hard, and felt like I got worked.

Definitely a keeper.
