Can’t Beat Rich

Feeling a little beat from yesterday.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 3×8 Reverse Hyper (210#)
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Snatch
    • 2x3x45#
    • 3×65#


12:00 AMRAP

  • 50 DU
  • 15 Snatches (weight goes up each round)
    • 95-115-135-155-185-205#

This was a What’s Rich Doing Challenge I had put on my list weeks ago when I saw it. I absolutely sucked on dubs today, which hurts your score bad in a workout like this. I got through 12 of the 15 snatches at 155# Did 3×5 with 95, 5×3 with 115, and then singles the rest of the way. Here you can see Rich do it and get through 12 reps with 185#…

3 Rounds

  • 30s Burpees
  • 30s Rest
  • 30s Air Squats
  • 30s Rest
  • 30s HS Hold
  • 30s Rest

Worked out well doing this after the snatch workout. With a nice rest was able to recover and push hard on the burpees to get 14 each round. Air squats were 22-23-26. Need to push harder on them.

Skill Work

5 Sets NFT

  • 4 Turkish Get-ups
  • 10 Ring Swings

I only got in 2 sets of get-ups (44# and 35#) since I was helping people out. I did get in swings after everyone was done. Put a towel between my feet again. Felt like my shoulders were able to open up a bit more on the back swing. Work in progress.

Tested out my shoulder a little bit today and I was able to pull higher in a pull-up before the pain kicked in, but then I was trying to demo a knee-up kip as a way to get your first pull-up and it didn’t feel good at all.
