Squat Snatches and Muscle Ups?!
Some of you will tell the coaches that you can't do one movement very well and that you may not be able to do the other one at all. All we have to say about that is...SO WHAT! If you were planning on coming in today then I suggest that you do so. You aren't going to get better at any of the movements by hiding from them. The coaches are there to make sure that you have a WOD that works for you, no matter how heavy or light you may go with a barbell or what "your version" of muscle ups may look like. Like we always say, intensity is relative so as long as you are willing to show up we are willing to help you have an awesome WOD. There should be no shame in scaling a workout, even our coaches and "firebreather" athletes scale WODs on a regular basis.
Below is a nice, quick reminder of why we should all be OK with scaling a WOD from time to time:
3 Reasons Why You Must Scale Your WODs
That being said, today's programming is fantastic for refining your technique with the snatch and for building your pulling and pressing strength with the Muscle Up regardless of your current ability level.
Below is a cool video of the former Fittest Woman on Earth, CLB, performing todays WOD with 40# more than she used in a previous CrossFit Games event. Do you think her time improved?
What an awesome way to celebrate your fitness. You can be on top of the world and still make improvements.
