Do we do 1 for each leg each round equaling 14 total?

Well, here it is, the halfway point in your CrossFit Resolution January. How ya doin’?

My name’s bingo and for the month of January I’m offering up a post each day that “pre-answers” the most common questions that come up year after year about our WOD’s and exercises. As always, I’m doing this as a kindness to you, dear Newbie, but also as an Anniversary gift to myself (I started CrossFit 1/1/06) and to long-term posters here on the Main Page who’ve heard it many, many times before. Not a Newbie? Bugged by posts that are anything but results? Cool. Walk on. They’ll be gone 2/1/12. For anyone new to our crazy CF world, I hope they’ve been helpful.

Here we go. Split Snatch for a one-rep max. 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. Seven sets of one rep. One heavy rep. It’s all about the Newbie experience here. Do some kind of warm-up. I strongly suggest the Burgener W/U, easily found over yonder in the “exercise and demos” section. While you’re over there find the video of Josh Everett doing a Split Snatch. Watch the WOD demos above. Never done a snatch of any sort? This is not a day to go for any kind of max, Grasshopper. Today is a study and skill day. Spend your time watching snatch videos, doing technique work with very low weight, and googling Olympic lifting coaches near your zip code.
Wanna give it a go? The snatch is a “fast” lift where a weighted barbell is lifted in one continuous movement from the ground to overhead without a pause in the rack. We are tasked with a very specific version of the snatch today, the “Split Snatch”. Bar on the ground, grip it with your arms spread wider than shoulder width using the “hook grip” (yup…exercises and demos). In one continuous movement lift the bar so that it “floats” at the level of approximately your shoulders and dive under the bar with your legs split front/back. You catch the weight in a split, or lunge, position. Sorry, there’s just no easy way to describe this with words, you’ve just gotta watch video. It’s kinda like a split jerk, only you never stop once you take it off the ground.

This is a really technical lift. ANY kind of snatch is a really technical lift. Be safe if this is really new to you, but have some fun, too. Not only is the Snatch the wellspring of some of the best CF jokes on record, it’s also a really cool skill. Learn how to do this well and you join a very small, very special club. CrossFit is an invitation to engage your imagination and the intellectual side of your fitness. Determined to get a heavy effort in, even if you have no idea how to do the Split Snatch? Go ahead and do a split jerk after you work that snatch.

‘Cause working that snatch is how we roll chez CrossFit. 3-2-1…Go.

No, Chris, do 7 sets only, and use whichever leg position gets you the highest weight.

Post orbiting..

Comment #5 - Posted by: bingo at January 17, 2012 5:30 PM

Jeff T..........hell yeah.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Pat Sherwood at January 17, 2012 5:38 PM

wow. As a newbie CrossFitter and an intermediate lifter, that move looks scary.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Kevin at January 17, 2012 5:38 PM

Hmm...this looks fun. Maybe I'll hit this tomorrow instead of C&J's which was my plan.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Todd at January 17, 2012 5:40 PM

The video with Coach is just amazing. I've never done this lift but, I'm excited to try it out now.

Games Site Feedback: Looks great!, Australian Regional=tasmania is apart of Australia.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Daz at January 17, 2012 6:30 PM

I'm going to go for max weight with each arm tomorrow. I don't have a bar yet so I'm going to go dumbbells. Looks pretty intense.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Paul m/28/6'2/190 at January 17, 2012 6:35 PM

Split jerks are not done with alternating foot position. Use what is comfortable (dominant foot forward). Check out this video for some help on what you need to be doing.

Be careful with this one and start light!

Jeff T...CrossFit Legend!

Comment #16 - Posted by: Christy Phillips at January 17, 2012 7:42 PM

If the knee touches the ground, I thought it doesn't count as a lift. Can anyone verify that?

Obviously only for competition purposes, he's still strong as hell for getting 165 even if his knee did touch.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Pete at January 17, 2012 7:49 PM

Yeah Jeff T...I'll add the split snatch to my to do list! Care to give me some pointers?

Comment #18 - Posted by: Adam C. at January 17, 2012 8:21 PM

175 split snatch (10 lb PR)

Comment #20 - Posted by: Tom at January 17, 2012 9:14 PM

I'd love a ruling from HQ on the use of this snatch when a WOD calls for squat snatch.

Coach B is correct when he says, "The criteria is hip crease below knee" and the split does place hip below knee.

This is a BIG DEAL for many of us with shoulder injuries from other sports.

HQ??

Do you guys recommend doing any kind of ab routine? or will doing the warm up and the wods get me the huge sick packs i see people who do crossfit have?

@21, try paleo for abs. 6 packs aren't "made" lifting weight...they're made lifting a fork.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Joe at January 18, 2012 12:06 AM

now that they are programming the "split" catch on the mainsite, does that mean they will allow them at the games? seems weird not to now

Wanted to say mahalo to Marcus, Jason & Bobbi from Crossfit Waikiki for being so welcoming to me and my wife last weekend. This is a brand-new box located in the Ililkai Hotel in Waikiki, so now you can go to Hawaii and hit a WOD without even leaving your hotel. They've got beautiful new Rogue gear (even with the shipping costs to Hawaii) and they are only a few hundred meters from the beach. Does it get any better than that? Best wishes for much success to them, and I hope to return soon.

HQ: Will these be recognized as a legitimate squat snatch at the 2012 Srctional, Regional, and Games so long as the hip crease is below the knee?

Thanks!!

Is Big Jeff T. 45yo old now? If he is that does not bode well for the rest of the Master's Division =)

I think Jeff T is still a young 43? But yes the Masters division is soon to be decimated by him in a couple years...

First time doing a split snatch. Had done normal snatches and the like with a low weight in college swimming to help with starts and turns, but this was pretty unique. I def think I could do more weight in the future, but I didn't want to push too hard...awesome stuff.

First time doing heavy split snatches. Everything over 160 was a little bit pressed out. My knee touched down on 170. These were fun to practice, but I think I'm a squatter, not a splitter. For future reference, current power snatch is 170, and current squat snatch is 180.

I started Crossfit about 3 months ago and it has been an awesome yet humbling experience. I've been working out religiously for 20 years plus and always considered myself in very good shape. That feeling stopped with crossfit. I love the training and am amazed how incredibly fit crossfitters are. Can't wait until tomorrows WOD.
First time with split snatch but loved it.

Iam not a Newbie but I spent some time with coach Burgener this past week and learned the split snatch
today I got 60,65, 70, 75,80, 85 could have done 90 but did not want to push it.At my age I know when to stop.Practice the foot work he told.
THANK YOU COACH, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Comment #80 - Posted by: Jacinto at January 18, 2012 1:24 PM

Tried the split snatch. Did the Burgener warm up and skill transfer exercises. Huge learning curve since I haven't done anything heavy overhead because of hand issues, but I liked it!

Split squat: 45, 50, 55, 60(f),60(f), 60(f).
I then did various skill progressions w/ 65# to train for the next time.

Next I did:

Only my htird crossfit workout, and I'm only in HS so that should explain my low weight and poor technique, although I did get some instruction on the technique, it still wasn't good.

Spent the day watching coach B videos and reading Olympic Weightlifting by Greg Everett. Tried some progressions. I can't get good depth without losing my balance. Worked my overhead squat position trying to improve balance at good depth. Any coaching points that can help? Also worked the Burgener Watm Up. Never even tried the WOD. Just working on technique but now I don't feel like I got much work down. I need a coach bad.

At 135 I started to see my form break down on the first two reps. I tried to pull the weight above my head instead of pulling myself under the bar. I focused and had a solid final rep.

First time doing split snatch.. and regular snatch is a weakness of mine... I like the movement, but to be honest I think I tighten up mentally too much... I only have metal plates to dumping is REALLY not a good option... I've done it a couple times but can't really do that too often...
Anyhoo, tried it out and it felt pretty good. I mentally went into a regualr squat snatch a couple times, and I'm actually proud that the muscle memory was kind of automatic, but then took a few seconds and did the split snatch.
I also had to move fast on this WOD... I finished playing with the kids in the snow.. sledding and then ran to my gym and had to be home in about an hour for my wife to leave.

85 lbs x 8
95 lbs x 6
105 lbs x 3
110 lbs x 2
115 lbs x (fail)
115 lbs x 1 (not so pretty)
115 lbs x 1 (not too heavy just mentally not commiting to it... jsut kept on workin on the speed and technique and committing to the move)
115 lbs x 1
115 lbs x 1 (felt easy)
115 lbs x 1 (felt easy)
120 lbs x (fail)
120 lbs x 1 (not so pretty)
did some OHS post WOD and then a light set of 115 lbs FS for 10
stretched out quickly then back home for the kids.
Fun.. I would like to experiment more with the split.. I felt like I had to really push my body under faster and the split movement really helped me pull my body underneath the bar... I liked that a lot.. I could really feel myself pulling myself under the bar when I committed to the move. I liked it. I also liked that I think this will help with my jerk and getting more comfortable getting really low on the jerk.
