The major pieces of this workout mimic that of something you typically see in the open everywhere.
Part 1 perform movements with fast cycle speed that will elevate heart rate and force you move quicker than you want to. Then part 2, figure out how to complete a heavy lift while under fatigue.
Using Fran during part 1 of this was a good choice because you have no choice but to cycles pull ups and thrusters fast to get them done (it’s basically what they did in the open this year).
Using a snatch as a max lift tho was not the best idea, far to much risk for the reward.
If we look at CrossFit class as “practice” and the CrossFit Open as the “game”. I think, unless your an elite athlete you should never go outside the constraints of what has been programmed in the past, to limit risk with your clients.
