Rob Miller Goes for a Big Snatch.
Many of us haven't learned the snatch, and most haven't done it much, so we just practiced a lot today, rather than doing the WOD for time at prescribed weights.

Amanda and Cullen both moved pretty well, just have some early arm pulling rather than letting their arms be ropes and allowing the shrug and hip extension to do all the work on getting the bar up and weightless, so they can quickly pull themselves under it into the overhead squat catch position.

Nice job, everyone!  Keep practicing!  I saw lots of improvement in just one hour!
