Go climb a rope

04 May Posted by in Helpful Tips | Comments

Lots of options for the rope climbs in today’s wod, make sure you selected the best option for your skill level/goals.  For those doing the full rope climbs, look to stagger your start by about a minute or so, especially if you are working on a touch and go skill set.

For the power snatches, feel free to move up in weight if your form and speed can keep up.  Use that first pull to really get into a good position and look to maximize your hip drive and snap under the bar in a strong receiving position
