Fast-Approach, High-Volume Squat Snatches
All reps are Touch and Go
5) 6:00-6 (sub 50% till here)
This is 40 Squat Snatches in 17 min... This is NOT expected to be a 3RM. You need to be flexible with your approach to STAY ON TIME and be SUCCESSFUL till at LEAST the 12th set!
There aren't percentages prescribed because athletes will vary greatly, depending on movement proficiency and stamina. But.... YOU SHOULD NOT BE AT 50% UNTIL AT LEAST SET 5!!
You will likely Snatch much lighter than your existing 3RM, and this will feel like a metcon for heavy hitters.
*Power snatch if ROM prevent squat snatch

In a workout like this, people often mis-count. To avoid mis-counting, and to allow coaches to spot-check rep quantity, you'll change your orientation with reps. This is not negotiable.
For the sets of 40 Snatches, you'll do your first 10 facing the mirrors. Then turn 90 degrees and do your next 10 facing the Innate fitness wall. Then, you'll turn 90 degrees and do your next 10 facing the windows. Then, you'll turn 90 degrees and do your final 10 facing the cubbies. This is not negotiable.
For the sets of 20 Burpees, you'll do the first 10 of each set of 20 facing the mirrors. Then, you'll do your second set of 10 of each set facing the windows. This is not negotiable.

This is a style that I have programmed many times separately, but never together…
We have done 40 on, 20 off, alternating movements EMOM, many times…
We have done intervals of a chipper with minutes on, then a small time off, picking up where you left off, such as 3 on, 1 off, many times….
But, this is a first…. A big chipper with a fast work/rest interval. It is a 2:1 work to rest interval. So, this could be 2 min on, 1 min off, or 4 min on, 2 min off…. Etc… Bur, we’ll do 40/20 EMOM today.
This quick interval is to prevent the road block that occurs with mono-structural movement fatigue. Instead of breaking the workout sets into small repetition sets, the sets remain large, but, short rest Is frequently incorporated.
Hopefully, the overall work rate is up for the duration of the allotted work times in the 40 min. This should hurt. ❤️
