Backstory: 

U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Andrew T. Weathers, 30, of DeRidder, Louisiana, died Sept. 30, 2014, at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

Weathers was wounded Sept. 28 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when he heroically ran to a rooftop through hundreds of incoming rounds to repel an attack of insurgents who were attempting to overrun his position. His actions saved the lives of five U.S. Green Berets and nine Afghan Commandos at his location. Weathers was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group, at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

Weathers is survived by his parents, Michael and Jere; sister, Carrie; brother, Dusten; and many other friends and family.

Let’s take a trip back in time to January when we were developing our Power Snatch during our strength program. Today’s class will start with working up to sets of the three of the Power Snatch. You might need a little review of the movement so we will include some skill work to begin. 

WOD for Tuesday, 11/7/17

6 Chin-ups (Strict)
*Can be weighted for elite athletes

MetCon: (Cap 20 mins)

AMRAP 20
20 Walking Boulder Lunges
20 Alternating MB Slam

A main differentiator between pull-ups and chin-ups is the recruitment of the bicep and lats based on hand placement. The underhand grip used in a chin-up places the bicep and lat in an advantageous position to pull making this exercise worth including in our programming.
