This Thursday is Bring a Friend Day. All classes are free!
We get to play around with something a little new today! Most of you probably haven’t done this much, or maybe at all. But if you know your games history, then you’ll know in like 2012 I think it was they had split snatches in one of the games workouts.
Not that it really matters, but understand that doing the split, whether it be snatch or clean, it just the same as doing a power or squat. It does require some sort of coordination and skill, as well as balance and agility, you still need power to actually get the bar up there, and you actually have to create more speed to get under the bar since you’re moving your feet.
All in all it’s a great way to help work on part of the 10 General Physical Skills that CrossFit advocates and well as can tend to get the heart rate up a bit since you’re moving more than you would on just a power snatch. Hope you enjoy this nice mix up in movements, should be refreshing. Also watch the video below if you still seem a bit confused, might help you for today!
