A) Every Minute on the Minute x 8 rounds:
16 Double Unders + 8 Dumbbell Snatches
8 Slow Overhead Squats, with an Empty Bar
B) Reverse Tabata, 8 rounds:
10 sec work / 20 sec rest
Hang Squat Snatch, with an empty bar
3 sets x 3 reps
Note: build to a weight that is challenging for 3 reps, but yet that you can repeat for 3 sets. This should not be a grinding set of 3. You may use the percentages between 75-80% of your best snatch if you have a number from the last 6 months.
If your technique is not there yet with the snatch, stay above the knees and master this position first before adding more range of motion. Make Sure your weight is in the middle of the foot, and their back is straight with their shoulders pinched back. From the ground lift the bar and receive the bar in the overhead squat position with the hip crease of the athlete above parallel.

Overhead Squats: if you have trouble with the overhead movement, scale load or scale movement to front squats.
Muscle-Ups: scale volume to 6 if you can perform muscle ups, but 12 is too many. If muscle-ups are not an option, scale to pull-ups for the same repetitions.
