Yay (Bumper) Burpees!

Today's burpee standard ends with you standing completely on a bumper plate.


WOD for Wednesday 2/6


snatch balance 15x1


every minute on the minute for 20 minutes:

(even minutes: 0:00, 2:00, 4:00, etc)
7 perfectly vertical kettlebell swings, 32/24kg
3 muscle-ups

(odd minutes: 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, etc)
7 front lunges, 32/24kg
7 burpees

Muscle-ups must start from full extension. The front lunge is stationary- step forward and return with kettlebell in rack. Burpees will finish by standing on a bumper plate.

Post snatch balance to whiteboard.

Something I can't stand is watching lifters with weak or inconsistent bottom positions in the snatch rush out of the squat and drop the bar partway up, even in power snatches (this applies to jerks as well). These same athletes will often also complain about missing big attempts that "felt so easy" because they can't secure the bar overhead long enough to recover successfully...
