This open test is one of my least favorite open tests that have been performed. The reason being is it is very one dimensional because it only test the athletes capability in the snatch. This workout goes against what CrossFit is all about, being able to sufficiently perform a multitude of skills at a high intensity.
The positive of the workout is it does require a solid level of conditioning and muscle endurance specifically in the snatch movement pattern. This is because all of the reps that the athlete is required to perform, but the limiting factor for everyone is their ability to demonstrate their strength in the snatch under fatigue.
A workout they did more recently in the open that I prefer over this one os the snatch ladder combined with chest to bar pull ups. I think this is a much better test because it requires the stronger who are favored in workouts like this to be able to demonstrate gymnastic skills on top their weightlifting abilities
