This video is amazing…amazing in that it shows how far CrossFit has come in just four years. Not only are the athletes struggling – STRUGGLING – with muscle-ups and what is considered a light snatch these days, but the announcers are even struggling calling the “squat snatch” a “squat clean”.
The muscle-up technique is terrible and I am sure all of these girls can complete Amanda in much less time today simply because they can “squat snatch” (I hate that term because it just a snatch…if I tell you to “snatch” I expect a squat) so much better and link together muscle-ups easily. In fact, here is Camille doing Amanda at the men’s weight just a month ago or so.
And watch the whole thing to watch Jason Khalipa just look awful snatching 135 pounds.
