Workout notes

Today’s workout is a long duration time priority couplet with a bodyweight movement and a high rep weightlifting movement. The elephant on the patio will most likely be the high volume set of snatches. Load your bar to a very light weight that lets you knock out a large number of reps per set. If you have a familiar kettlebell weight, compare your snatch weight to that. If you swing a 24kg/53lb kettlebell comfortably, a 75 lb barbell would be a huge increase in weight! Compare that to suddenly deciding to use a 32kg kettlebell in a high rep workout. Keep the bar light and work through each set of fifty in large sets.
