How to begin this without coming off like I am being uninspiring on purpose…

You guys suc…that’t not going to work.
I am so much be…nope, too straightforward.
When a man loves a wom…save that one for later.


Got it!

I am showing you how uphill the road ahead becomes for your own good!  Imagine for a second that I am your parent and you are my child and I am teaching you things about the world.  Imagine if I were to hold you and guard you from all of the hardships with which life  can surprise you.  Imagine me cradling you in my arms whenever things got hard and challenging.  Imagine if I just fixed everything that proved difficult so that you could do it without a problem or crying your eyes out.  All of those things are kinda creepy, but I know you get it.  We sometimes need to be exposed to what may appear like an impassable obstacle so that we can test ourselves against a greater than normal challenge.  If this workout does not come across to you as difficult, please known that “Amanda” is also know as “Fran on steroids”.

Also, today we debut the Squat Snatch (I have been waiting a long time for this).  Do me the favor of scrolling up to the search box and look up “*”.  Go ahead, I will wait.  If you go to the very second to last one, you will come across the workout when the Squat Clean was first debuted.  The asterisk there notes the following:  “Nothing quite feels like landing a heavy Squat Clean and then powering through the Front Squat in order to complete the lift*”  That nothing was a lie!  If you enjoy the sensation of being able to catch a heavy Clean load, be prepared for even more awesome.  Properly catching a Squat Snatch feels like riding a motorcycle into a slam dunk while high-fiving a bear…only better.  I strongly encourage you to scale the workout so that you can do it correctly and memorize that euphoric feeling.
