Got Grip?

June 19, 2019

Today’s Bridgetown CrossFit WOD will challenge the grip and forearms. Work aggressively on the DB Snatch and Hex Bar build up to get the most out of this one. If you are trying to modify and do this at home, use a sumo or wide stance to replace the hex bar. Keep the hips high for sumo and torso engaged, regardless of equipment used.

Hex Bar Deadlift: build up to heavy 5
Alternating 1 Arm DB Snatch: build up to heavy 2/2

12 Minute AMRAP
3 Hex Bar Deadlifts (80% of 5)
6 Alternating 1 Arm DB Snatch (85% of 2/2)
9 Hex Bar Deadlifts (80% of 5)
12 Alternating 1 Arm DB Snatch (85% of 2/2)

Was this workout a good one? Was it a siffiently aweful? Perhaps you just feel crushed. Could it be time to scale back on the lifts in order to make more gains?
