Friday 5.27.11

Here you see actual Secret Service Agents meeting to discuss their strategy for the Secret Service Snatch Test. At least I like to think that's what's going on.
- Deadlift 1RM for the day, then 80-85% x5 (set a new 5rm if possible)
Secret Service Snatch Test
- AMRAP in 10:00 of KB Snatch (53/35)

We did this WOD on 9.20.10, about 8 months ago.  If you did it then, try and use a heavier KB than last time.  If you already did it as rx'd, do more reps this time!

The metcon is called the Secret Service Snatch Test, because it is rumored that the elite agents of the Secret Service do this as a test of both physical fitness and mental fortitude. The object is simple: do as many reps as you can in 10:00. ANy snatch version is acceptable, full squat snatches or power snatches.  It doesn't matter if you do them all on the same side, switch hands every 10 reps, or even every rep if you want. This is a link to the top recorded scores for this test. How do you measure up?

Post deadlift weights and metcon results to the comments section!  bc
