RANDY


Randy Simmons
In honor of Randy Simmons, 51, a 27 year LAPD veteran and SWAT team member who was killed February 6 in the line of duty.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Simmons' wife and two children.

WOD:
“Randy”
75 x snatch (75/45)

Post time to comments.

Notes: Power snatches are okay. Determine a strategy before you begin, e.g.as deep into the 75 as possible on first attempt, one every five seconds, sets of seven, no more than three breaths each pause. Focus on weight toward heels, speed through the middle, full hip extension. Weight should tap the deck each rep, but no bouncing! Get a buddy to watch your form.

IMCF Hohenfels:

17:23 as Rx'd

Hindsight - too slow at start but had good FROM through-out the first half; had I scaled to 65lbs would have been able to better maintain tempo and form. As it turned out, still a great WOD.

4.30 as RX'd. Good workout. Also got to meet Justin this morning and discuss the wide snatch grip and keeping the bar close to the body.

13:30. The first 38 I was deliberate about my form and went full depth in the catch. For the last 37 I split between full depth and muscle snatch.

11:47--found my grip to be the limiting factor, even using the hook grip. Would have liked to move faster...

9:44 I did about half of them really working on form and trying to get to full depth.

Randy, 6:23. Talked to management about the pull up bars today, expect the lower rungs to be open later today. Stay off the thinner upper rungs. Meanwhile. I'm talking with MWR about getting new racks altogether.

Randy in 8:31 as RXed. Form was not so great on the last 15. Went unbroken on the first 25.

8:45 as Rx'd,
did the first set of 25, then by 10s to 60 and then 5s. form was sucking near the end but a great workout
