Coach's thoughts on today:

Intensity group has a much tougher go of it today, at least when it comes to the Push-up AMRAP, considering the Hang Snatch will fatigue the shoulders and arms a bit, particularly if you manage a solid number, but you as a group should be holding the standard anyways in terms of effort and ability, so show us what you've got. That doesn't mean that Form or Consistency has it easy. Without the overhead component or potential flexibility restrictions the reps will most likely be higher. If you are really going for a leg crusher (regardless of your normal "group") do Form. There is no Rxd weight so you could really load it up if so inclined and get high reps at a heavy weight. This is one of those days where Form could easily be the hardest of the 3, it is just a less complex movement for those who struggle with the O-lifts.
