Max Snatch then Randy

Saturday 13.9.14


A. Snatch Max

  • Work up to a max, this could be a new 1RM or just a heavy snatch with good form

B. Randy

  • 75 Power Snatches for time
  • 35/25kg is RX
  • Technique must be at the forefront today, especially as you fatigue
  • Break up the reps, don’t be a hero

Post the max weight lifted, your time for the WOD (or reps completed) and any notes to comments


Sharing is Caring ;)

    A. Got some great tips from Coach Craig which saw me get under 40kgs, but dropped to a knee, so no rep. Keen to try it again soon.
    B. This was my first hero wod completed RX. Finished in 7.24, did 4 sets of 10 and then sets of 5.

  • Ivan L says:

    A. 65kg. PB by 4kg. Got very close on 67.5kg. Particularly enjoyed working with Jim who must have just had something click with technique – improved on his PB 4 times this morning!
    B. 6:31. Quite satisfied with that.

  • Matt B says:

    AAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! so close today! I worked up to 77.5kg and went for a PB at 82.5. I got under it twice but my kegs wouldn’t stand it up 🙁

    Randy = 60 solid reps and then massive Hulk arms. Finished in 6:11

  • Mark says:

    A: Feeling super flat this morning. In spite of that, hit 50kg snatch (which I thought was a PR, but when I checked records I’ve already done 52).
    B: 57 in 8:00

    • Mark says:

      Just checked out my rolling randy from this time last year – 52 lifts in 10 mins (plus all the rolling). So this is probably an improvement.

  • Ray Simonsen says:

    A) Stayed with 40kg. Focused on form. Was given a couple of tips from Craig. – knee felt good and strong.

    B) Finished WOD RX in 7:14. Very happy with this.

  • TarrynC says:

    A: got 50kg! PB by 2.5kg and considering 2 weeks ago I failed 48kg a number of times I was pretty stoked. My goal was to get 50kg by the end of the year! Goal accomplished!

    B: 7:37 rx. Rested a bit too much but happy to finish within the cap!

    • TarrynC says:

      Just searched the site out of interest. ..12 months ago we did a “rolling randy” (3 forward rolls of the bar os down). I scaled to 20kg and only finished 60 reps! Time limit was 10 minutes too. Pretty happy with that improvement!

  • TessaW says:

    A: 52.5kg
    B: First time doing Randy – finished RX at 6:11

  • john parr says:

    A: worked to 65kg, tried 70kg a few time, but that was not going to happen

    B: went RX and knocked it over in 5:52 which is a PR

  • Olivia says:

    Hit up open gym for a 1RM clean & jerk before the 8:30 session. New clean PB @ 71kg (+1kg), failed the jerk but thats ok cos I PB’d on that last week @ 70kg.
    No new 1RM for Snatch – got 50kg, failed 51&52.. Current 1RM is 53.
    Happy to see that I can still hit close to my maxes – felt like I was losing form in the last couple of months.
    First time to do Randy, did a rolling Randy previously.
    Finished it in 5:46 Rx – didn’t really have a strategy except to try hold on for sets of muscle snatch for as long as possible.
