75 Power Snatches 75/55
These should be on the very light side for you today. 40-60% is appropriate. It should be a weight that you can perform (initially at least) sets of 5-15 reps of. Fastest time are a little over 2 minutes (and performed unbroken!), but we’ll have a soft 10 minute cap on this hero WOD today. Even though the Power Snatches are light, it’s 75 reps and most people should still drop under a little bit to save your shoulders.

Press and Negotiating
BYOProgram OR plan to focus on working up to a heavy five on your Overhead Press. Feedback on technique can be provided. Post-lifting, we’re happy to welcome CFSBKer and Starting Strength Cycle alum Karina Totah for a workshop in negotiation skills:
Women don’t ask. Research shows they forego over ½ million dollars in salary over their lifetimes.
Like lifting, negotiation skills get better with practice. But unlike lifting, success and failure aren’t as black and white in negotiations. Come out to lift, and stay to learn the nuance of negotiation so you can successfully navigate asking for what you need and want.
In this workshop, we’ll cover negotiation framing and prep, do a live practice, and discuss negotiation plans.
Karina Totah’s Middle-Eastern father had her haggling from a young age. She strengthened her negotiation instinct with more structured training at Yale’s School of Management. Now she enjoys sharing her knowledge with other women. By day, Karina is Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at the New York City Housing Authority; by morning, usually at 7am, she’s a CFSBKer.
