While coaching Thursday's 6am class I thought to myself "Man, these peeps look great snatching!"  Whether it was 20 pounds on the bar or 220, just about every level of experience looked technically sound and crisp on the barbell.  We'd talked a bit about thinking that snatches and chest-to-bar pull-ups (and I also threw double unders out there) were possibly coming up in 17.3 - and, as it turns out, we were pretty close with our guesses.  So it was no surprise that we tried to build-in some C2B work earlier in the week, and then a snatch technique session on Thursday.  What Sarah and I (and all of our coaches at Arena Ready) hope is that athletes completing Open 17.3 this coming weekend do so with the same solid technique we saw on Thursday - and while some of you may be pushing for a new PR we also want you to exercise your intelligent decision-making skills when it comes to attempting weights that approach your limits (e.g. missing/dropping correctly when and if needed).  

OK, that said - here we go!  If you're going to be completing the workout this weekend at Arena Ready (either during the fun craziness of our Open Heats during all Saturday classes, or during Sunday Open Gym) then please start by reviewing the workout details here and watching the standards video above - thanks!
