4 minutes can knock you on your ass

After a lovely rest and cheat day it was back to the gym.

Snatch 3,2,2,1@85-90%1RM

Well, I based my 1RM off of 55# because that's the most I've done so far.

I did 35,45,45,50
Not much to say about these, I'm still learning.

Next up on the suck menu...
5 rounds
5 DL 125#
5 KB thrusters 20# each
Time 4:12

Let me add that this was supposed to be done with DB. But, the lightest DB at my gym were 35#. Now, I've never done thrusters with anything other than a barbell. For a metcon like this I normally would have gone with 70#. However, this is a way different feeling. Much harder, IMO. So, I used the 20# kettlebells. Interesting. The weight wasn't bad, but cleaning the KB one handed was the hard part. Otherwise, I might have been able to go heavier.

It was a hard workout.
It's amazing what you can do in 4 minutes.
