7 rounds each for time of:

5 power snatches 60/40

1 sub-0:40/0:45 200-m sprint

Rest 1min

If the sprint takes longer than 40 seconds, redo it before moving back to the snatch.
Strategy:

This workout requires you to find a balance between speed and pacing. You want to rest as little as possible while still meeting the time requirement to avoid extra runs. Pick a run pace that requires a strong effort but is a few seconds slower than your max effort. Use the same load on the snatch that you would use for Grace or Isabel.

Equipment:

thumb tape is a must to help with hook grip!

Nutrition Tip

Eat Nuts

Despite being high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.

They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and various other nutrients.

Studies show that nuts can help you lose weight, and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease

Additionally, about 10-15% of the calories in nuts aren’t even absorbed into the body, and some evidence suggests that they can boost metabolism .

In one study, almonds were shown to increase weight loss by 62% compared to complex carbohydrates
