In the muscle-up transition, the elbows move from under the rings to over, while the hands trace a very tight line above the nipple, and never move from close contact with the body.

meant to say snatch, oops, snap!

Comment #5 - Posted by: MoisesDelMar M/26/165/5'8'' at February 12, 2010 5:08 PM

Nothin feels quite like a good snatch.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Mikey - 21 - 5'11" - 170lbs at February 12, 2010 5:11 PM

So what would be a good progression to your max?

Comment #7 - Posted by: rickf at February 12, 2010 5:11 PM

Does this mean doing the maximum number of snatches possible in 10 minutes?

Or does it mean to find my snatch maximum in 10 minutes?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Sidahmed at February 12, 2010 5:12 PM

I am reading this as "Pick a weight and do as many snatches as possible in 10 minutes". The alternative is "Reach the highest 1RM you can in 10 minutes", but I think the former is a bigger blast !

Comment #9 - Posted by: Beasty Williams at February 12, 2010 5:13 PM

I am with you Beastie. Think I will do as many reps as possible in 10 minutes with a given weight. My technique for snatch is awful and could use as much work as possible so this makes more sense for me than max weight. May not be the intended way but its what I am gonna do.

Comment #10 - Posted by: dan m at February 12, 2010 5:20 PM

Elaborate please. Do I go for as many reps as possible in 10 mins of say, 135???

Comment #11 - Posted by: khemeran ing at February 12, 2010 5:28 PM

To me, this is identical to the heavy snatch event at the 2009 games. You have 10 minutes to find your one rep max snatch, but I may be incorrect.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Paul at February 12, 2010 5:32 PM

#12 is right

Comment #13 - Posted by: charbs 185/24/m at February 12, 2010 5:33 PM

If it was for max reps in 10-min, I would think they would say to post number of reps in the comments. It says to post the load, therefore, I think it's 1RM.

Comment #14 - Posted by: rickf at February 12, 2010 5:34 PM

This means find your one rep maximum in ten minutes. If it said as many reps as possible in ten minutes post load to comments then you would do that.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Flosi at February 12, 2010 5:35 PM

Max Snatch
Ten minute time limit,not including warm-up.

2009 CrossFit games ,6th workout,simple:find a one-rep-max snatch.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Pedro Barrera,Scotland at February 12, 2010 5:35 PM

hmmm, this one will have to wait until monday I think, my Wright HD bar is due in the mail then along with all kinds of weight. I'll figure out something to do tomorrow instead.

Comment #17 - Posted by: MattTruss M/24/5'7/165 at February 12, 2010 5:41 PM

Pedro #16 has it right. This weekend officially kicks off the 2010 CrossFit Games season with the Missouri Sectional. We're honoring that with the first workout of Day 2 of the 2009 Games.

Form great, felt good, next time can get 225, maybe even 230. DL's leave me feeling all happy and energetic :)

Going to try and work on my form and dedicate this one to Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, who just died in the Winter Olympics here in Canada in his 2nd preliminary run. Here's to all the athletes out there!

Comment #33 - Posted by: Heath Powell at February 12, 2010 8:55 PM

Not related to today's WOD, but I've been having trouble finding info on common causes and how to prevent my hips from rising too quickly when doing back squats. This is more pronounced as I get closer to my max.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Comment #36 - Posted by: Ian at February 12, 2010 9:22 PM

I have had the pleasure of training with John Warnek for the last four months. He introduced to me to crossfit and for that I will be eternally grateful. It's people like him that make crossfit what it is. Here's a guy that started working from the main page wods, built a strong foundation of strength and stamina, and now highlights what dedication to this program can bring. I want to thank John for his guidance in my training and thank Crossfit KOP for showcasing one of their talents. Go get 'em in the sectionals. I'll be routing for you.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Rashmi at February 12, 2010 10:26 PM


Do as much of warm up progression as you need (Burgener warmup, snatch balance, snatch heave, etc).

When you are warm, you then have 10 minutes to find a 1RM. I normally rest 2-3 minutes between single attempts, but that will be cut down.

Watch the 2009 Games Event 6 video to see how this works. Get on the bar, perform a good snatch and repeat as soon as you are ready.

My question to the group...I assume that the form intended is a well performed full snatch vs "anyway you can get it overhead" snatch ala Event 6? I don't intend to attempt standing up from my knees....

Confused: in general or with this WOD?

surely the WOD is pretty simple.

Shoot.. I do not know if it is my form or what but I am significantly weaker in this exercise. I max on bench 245, squat 255, deadlift 285, and my snatch for today...


Any tips or insight?

Comment #45 - Posted by: Danny G at February 13, 2010 4:20 AM

WOD looks rad, although technically it's a rest day for me, I might try it.

RE the muscle up progression: Great advice. I've also been given two bits of advice that have greatly helped me conquer the muscle-up. 1) a guy from Seattle told me to think about it like you were tearing your t-shirt off, Hulkamania style. Once you pull-up, your hands reach essentially your shirt collar and then you explode down and out like you were tearing your shirt off. 2) the same idea was described to me as following the outline of the pectoral muscle: down and out. The other piece of advice, if you kip it, is to not swing too far forward, but rather make sure your head is in front of you elbows and wrists. This sets up the dip very easily. Well NOT very easily, but more easily than if your head is behind your elbows.

I get the impression that the wording originally said "Max Snatch" and then was later changed to "1 rep-max Snatch". It was the previous wording that people were getting confused by...

Comment #47 - Posted by: AJ at February 13, 2010 4:57 AM

-12 C outside so I didn't do snatches instead...

135, 155, 175, 185, 195, 205, 210x

205 is my max today, not good. Not bad for a 43yo, 205# old man though.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Paul at February 13, 2010 6:02 AM



A new PR, but not by much. The snatch, like so many techniques it seems, is a weak point for me. I guess it's time to start throwing it into to my technique practice cycle along with double unders and overhead squats.

Comment #50 - Posted by: Mike at February 13, 2010 6:11 AM

Alright I need help with this one. I consider myself a strong guy (m/28/5'7/167) but I can't get the form down for heavy weights with the snatch, power cleans or any similar exercise. What is a good method for increasing weight on this exercise? I've seen the videos and I can do this with lower weights but when I get around 135# everything goes to hell.

I drive my feet, push with my hips but then I end up doing too much pulling with my hands to get it all the way up. What am I doing wrong and what can I do to fix this? I'm going back later today to do this workout again because I'm pissed about it all so looking for help before I do that. Any info or good links would be helpful, and I sure others that are learning this exercise can benefit as well. Thanks all!

Comment #51 - Posted by: Michael C at February 13, 2010 6:36 AM

125lbs (felt good)
-no bumper plates so can't commit all the way

Comment #52 - Posted by: Simon/29/M/185/5'9" at February 13, 2010 6:46 AM

1 rep-max Snatch

Ten minute time limit, not including warm up.

in 5 lbs jumps taking 10 sets in the 10min.
from 75lbs to 120lbs

My one rep max was 100lbs last time.

It was good, I had my shoulders locking good, I had to focus hard on my left shoulder locking BEFOR catching the bar.

I was going up by 5lbs a round. I'm not to comfortable with this movement, but I have progressed.

I had 115lbs done thinking that would be my last set and happy with the 15lbs pr, and looking at the clock I had 45seconds to go and thought ''I can stick on 5 more pounds and go befor times up.'' So I slapped it on, didn't look at the clock, set and pulled it. Then with it over head I looked to the clock at 10:00 even.

Real happy with it. i needed a good lift after the otherday.

New 1RM Snatch - 50KG / 110lbs

Comment #55 - Posted by: Stevie G at February 13, 2010 6:55 AM

Crossfit Sri Ram Ashram, India
OK, so I promised the young men I would amend our earlier post.
Uttam - 55kg snatch.

Arvind and Gautam did the WOD first and thought it was #of reps in 10 minutes so they picked a lower weight. They got a good WOD in regardless.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Rashmi at February 13, 2010 7:00 AM

145 ----- PR!

old PR from January was 125 so this is awesome.

I got a few attempts at 150 but couldn't quite get under it due to lack of bar speed. We'll see next time

Comment #57 - Posted by: Shane/31/6'/190 at February 13, 2010 7:11 AM

155# 1RM (up from 135#). also if you get a chance check out www.2POOD.com.

"10 min. 1 rep snatch"


* I liked the less rest in between sets, I felt like I was physically and mentally more ready each set, next time I WILL get 160, got it high enough, just not man enough to get underneath it.

Comment #59 - Posted by: jnel at February 13, 2010 7:38 AM

got 160 overhead but it was pretty ugly so not going to truly count it

I wanna jump onto the thread from yesterday. We were talking about posting anything other that time and loads on this tread. This is the most sophisticated training log known to man. All one has to do is click the compare link and do a search for their name and bam, your last workout numbers pop up. For thoes of us who grew up with out the Internet, this is really amazing stuff. So knowing and understanding that as the only purpose of this thread, unless you want to read what others have written, you don't have to. As for searching or looking at times other than your own... Ok compare, but this contest has only one contestant. To compare ones self to others, I think it is a great way to limit your self to others abilities.

Iam I feel completley uncomfortable with this lift. Has anyone out there taught themself the proper form,or do you suggest I make a trip to a local affiliate. I started precticing with a pipe and moved on the the barbell. During todays workout I did max at 135#, but felt very very shaky.

name of song in video!?

Comment #71 - Posted by: freeman at February 13, 2010 9:19 AM

Only did (power) snatches once before, and never done full snatches, so this serves to establish my PR.

warmup 25 minutes on bike before going out into the barn. 25 degrees F here today.

10 lifts:

1. 95
2. 135
3. 155
4. 165 (f)
5. 165 (f)
6. 160
7. 160
8. 175 (PR)

The first eight lifts were increasingly like power snatches; so I dropped weight and went for better form.

9. 135 (f)
10. 135 (f)

Will work on better form next time.

Comment #80 - Posted by: Maurice at February 13, 2010 11:18 AM


So, what you're saying is that this workout has been programmed for quote some time - as part of a progression right? It's just a coincidence that it is the exact same workout as that of one of the Missouri sectionals?

Please elaborate how this workout fits into the overall progression of this month/quarter/cycle.

Sucks... I did this in September. I'm sure it's a form issue as I could easily clean this and shoulder press it. Need to find a coach to fix my form.


Comment #86 - Posted by: Mike C. at February 13, 2010 11:42 AM

Hello folks, this is my third week into crossfit, been loving so far. I seem to keep having problems with the landing while trying to perform the snatch. Everything works great until my body drops to receive the load. My shoulders do not seem to be able to extend behind my head far enough to correctly balance the load. Is there anything that I can do to increase the flexibility in my shoulders, or do I have gross misunderstanding of the correct form?

Comment #87 - Posted by: caleb at February 13, 2010 11:47 AM

Let me just say how offended I am at the muscle up photo serious. We're supposed to be about elite fitness and you post that sort of provocative and exploitative photo? Couldn't you find a photo of a guy wearing a sweatshirt instead?

Comment #88 - Posted by: djp at February 13, 2010 11:51 AM

right shoulder having no snatch action.

Warmed up with 55# and 60#..thought everything became detached!

did the CFWU and then 4 rounds of run 400m 50 air squats. My 8 year old daughter did the first 2 rounds with me-very cute!

Comment #89 - Posted by: Fit Mom in CT of CrossFit Persevere (F38/130/5'2") at February 13, 2010 11:53 AM

I really love this photo of the muscle up. Coincidentally, I was practicing today after class with some fellow students and they kept telling me that I was going up with my head rather than through. I didn't really understand what they were talking about but this photo clears it all up! "Oh! That through!" ; ) Plus I wasn't exactly sure what my legs were supposed to be doing. It seems not much and it's more of a hollow torso position; like the letter "C." "Oh!" again. I didn't even think about my torso! Sometimes the videos are hard to pinpoint the details of a move because they happen so fast and only a trained eye can see it so a photo or video in slow motion is a fantastic learning source! Thanks!

Comment #96 - Posted by: Kyle A. at February 13, 2010 12:12 PM

125... I have no idea about my form. I practiced a lot at 95 lbs and seemed to have it down, but I have a habit of doing a modified power snatch and getting too high when I go for the higher weights. I have a mental block about getting under the bar. I know I could do more if my form was better. This makes me really think seriously about joining my local crossfit affiliate.

77 pounds...for second session snatching ever, feeling was really good, shoulders naturally going back just when they had to, to lock out. Looking forward to heavier next time..

Comment #108 - Posted by: Craigb at February 13, 2010 1:05 PM

2nd time doing snatch. Last Dec. only got 95lb. Today worked up to 155lb PR!

Really concentrated on the hip thrust for momentum. Now, I just need to work on the drop into OHS to get under heavier weights.

Comment #109 - Posted by: Billy/Engine25 m/37/214/69" at February 13, 2010 1:11 PM

Got 3 reps up of 175, but couldn't get 185 high enough today. 180 is my old pr from Oct 2008. I should do max snatches more often.

145 pounds...tried for 165, and then 155 several times to no avail.

My technique is not right. I am basically 'power snatching' it. I am getting that extension at the hip and a powerful shrug to put it over head...but I am barely dropping under it and not continuing into a OHS. I need to practice my oly lifts a lot. I am signed up for a level 1 cert in May, so that will help.

On all successful attempts thought only about jump/land / and foot position. On failed attempt thought about weight and did not even get under bar.
The mental process of this lift combined with the threat of damaging the floor is humbling.

Burgener W/U then short bit of skill work before starting the clock.

Hit my 175(PR) with 1:30 to go. Hurried myself a little on the 180 and failed but I know I can get it so maybe I'll mess around with it later in the week.

Love doing the snatch. For those of you wondering, the CF Oly Lift certs will pay for themselves in technique and pounds on your lifts. 2 months ago, I was struggling with 155 and I hit this one strong.

Comment #132 - Posted by: bob at February 13, 2010 3:51 PM

Kind of disappointed with the results so far, the best I've seen posted is 93kg (205lbs), if we are forging elite fitness I would expect to see some bigger lifts. To put it in perspective, 48kg (105lbs) women at the Beijing olympics were snatching 93-95kg. I know the lift is technical, but people should be striving for excellence as the snatch hits almost all of the 10 domains of fitness as defined by CF/Dynamax.

Comment #133 - Posted by: Greg Keoc at February 13, 2010 4:03 PM

I'm finding snatches one of the hardest, but most fun, lifts to learn. I experimented a bit with them last summer/fall and since starting CF in Dec have been doing the Burgerner WU, but this WOD was the first time I've really snatched with some weight. I exceeded my own expectations and see this is a great step.

Comment #134 - Posted by: Brian/m/19/6'3"/225 at February 13, 2010 4:05 PM

Got up to 115# then decided to not go any further due to lack of bumper plates and a platform at my globo-gym. Spent the remainder of the time working on form with 65#. Had a couple really nice ones that made me smile at the bottom!

Comment #135 - Posted by: angstadt at February 13, 2010 4:06 PM

W/U: Burgener warm-up, 3x3 at 45-55-65#; hang snatch (w/full squat), 8x1 at 95-100-105-110-115-120-125-130#.

As Rx: 155#.

Work during 10 min: 135-145(fx2)-145-150(f)-150-155(f)-155#.

C/D: horse stance hold (top of quads parallel to floor, knees behind toes, spine vertical), 2:00.

I was hoping for 165# today, but it just wasn't in me. Still kind of beat-up from the last cycle. Plus, spent the day skiing.

Learning how to do a Snatch. It was a rough beginning. Didn't do any more than 75 pounds. Need to work more on Overhead Squats before I continue with Full Snatch. Working on shoulder flexibility and squatting the full distance.

Me: 43yo/M/5'10"/180lbs/11%BF

This is my 33rd "Named WOD" this year "Joshie"

I Didn't have much time today and this WOD was tough.

Warm Up: Greg A's warm up.

WOD Joshie:

L-Pull-ups: I don't know about anyone else but when I lift my legs for the L-Pull-Up my elbows bend and when I am in the down position I find it almost impossible to straighten my arms out completely, Its feels like my shoulders will rip apart if I go completely down and lock my arms out, its Bizarre.

40lb Dumbell Snatches. These were a gasser for sure. Active shoulders is the mantra for me on these.

Cooldown: Took about 100 pics of my lady doing dumbell snatches in her Bikini. Love the pic yesterday, thought we'd make some of our own :-)

last six felt pretty good. still too much arms, not enough hips. need to work on these

Comment #147 - Posted by: illis m/29/160/5'10 at February 13, 2010 4:55 PM

115lb.max - pr is 135lb. focused on driving the hips more this time,my weight went down 20lb. but in the long run,it will go up and be more effective.I had to leave my ego at the door on the snatch today:Technique and Form shows on the snatch!

Comment #148 - Posted by: TRIPKASE m/37/5'7/160 at February 13, 2010 4:58 PM

This was fun - the time limit kept me watching the clock. I also went heavy pretty quickly. I did power snatches instead of squat snatches today, as my shoulder gives me more grief at the bottom of the OHS than at the top.

Buy-in: CFWUx2, clean & jerk 95x5, power snatch 95x3

Results: 135-145-155(f)-155(PR)-160(f,f,f,f,f,f, etc.)

155 is a PR for both power and squat snatch for me. I had to muscle it up a bit. I had trouble getting 160 high enough, and by the time I felt the form coming along, I had missed it several times already and was pretty tired.

Cash-out: Felt really good, so afterward, I did C&J 155x5, and then decided to try for a Clean PR with 225. Failed about 5 times, but it felt great, and I had 2 that were really close (squat clean).

Comment #149 - Posted by: Mel/36m/5'10"/170 at February 13, 2010 5:31 PM

Comment #153 - Posted by: Chappy B+ at February 13, 2010 6:06 PM

I have never really done any Olympic lifts before checking out Crossfit, so I stayed with a fairly low weight (135lbs) on this one and just tried to figure out how to do a proper snatch. I went anywhere from completely R-worded to fairly welly executed, but I think if I tried to go too heavy, I may have just killed myself. I now know my weakness, and I accept the challenge. I Love these workouts, and although I have always felt pity for the slothful masses, I feel it to an even greater extent now.

As Rx'd:

The last few attempts were basically a mix between muscle and power snatches, not a full snatch so i'm reluctant to even count them at all.
Clearly, I REALLY suck at snatches and need a lot of work. I just can't seem to allow myself to drop below the bar into the bottom of an overhead squat.

First time doing a 1 rep-max snatch. I had more time to do at least one more attempt at 155. But I just wasn't feeling it...just one of 'em days.

145#. Terrible at these

Comment #207 - Posted by: Rosie in Atl at February 16, 2010 5:07 AM

finally caught up with this one today, only second time doing these and got to 135lbs in the 10 minutes. Felt like my legs got a little too far apart on the catch, but it could be ok. Need to have someone check out my form I think. Gonna give myself some more time before I really push it here, still getting used to the Oly lifts

125#, not sure if it was a true snatch as it seemed like a push press from the nose position.

Failed at 135- got it to my chin, but had to let it go.

155# FAIL
Ran a 9:30 mile

Comment #210 - Posted by: Linwood Wright at February 16, 2010 10:53 AM


Really need to work on form here. Horrible at getting under the bar. So needs to be a better point of emphasis for me. Oh well.
Will need t daily work on this one.

Better luck next time.

Comment #219 - Posted by: KA at February 16, 2010 7:23 PM

35yom / 206lbs

1 rep-max Snatch
Ten minute time limit, not including warm up.

65 x 1
75 x 1
85 x 1

Felt fairly good. Always some form/efficiency issues that become apparent when more weight is present. I get the motion almost half the time, but can't quite achieve it the other half. Unfortunately, I bailed on the 95# and went on my a$$. Got some nice bruises, though.

Comment #220 - Posted by: Bphantom at February 16, 2010 8:22 PM

worked hard on the form, but still had bad form.

got to 90#, ended looking more like power snatches.

20 pound pr since getting oly shoes

Comment #231 - Posted by: Cass at February 18, 2010 7:45 AM

Prev power snatch PR: 115lb
Prev squat snatch PR: 110lb

WOD as RX'd. Started at 95lb squat snatch, increased by 5 lbs until turned into power snatch.

New power snatch PR: 120lb
new squat snatch PR: 115lb

After 115lb, lost form and had trouble even power snatching 120lb. Pulling 125lb high enough I think, but having trouble getting under the bar. Too bad too, cuz 110lb and 115lb felt easy - probably the best squat snatches I've done.

Comment #232 - Posted by: R.Lee_Seattle at February 18, 2010 9:03 AM

not very good at this; worked on form with 95# and then went to max 135...
