Metabolic Conditioning: “Soft Sand“

7 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible for time)

12 dumbbell hang power snatch -single arm (Health: 15lb / Athletic: 30lb* / Performance: 45lb)

Coaching Tips: Alternate arms as desired.  Be smart about when you break things up so that you avoid putting the dumbbell down (splitting each set up between each arm for example).  Hook gripping the dumbbell is highly recommended. The dumbbell can be held in the hand in any way that makes sense (in the rack, overhead, at the side, etc.), but you cannot rest it on your shoulder, head, etc.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 4 min max cal row or airbike
