*Women’s “Performance” weights and reps (Rx)

Scaling Guide: 4 – 9 minutes, about 2 minutes for the snatches, 1.5 min for the overhead squats, 2 min for the row. Scale Up: 95/155lb snatches and OHS.

Coaching Tips: Pace the snatches so that you can go right into the overhead squats for a big set. Consider resting the bar on your back as opposed to dropping it if you can. Push the pace on the snatches and overhead squats so you get to the rower faster. Start the row conservatively, but speed ups as you pass the halfway mark.
