WOD
3 Attempts for Max Load:

Warmup to your start weight, which should be a weight you successfully lift every time.
2nd attempt should be a weight you have been successful at a few times, but it’s challenging.
3rd attempt should be a new PR.

If you miss your 2nd lift, you should repeat that weight or increase only a little for your 3rd attempt.  No decreasing the weight is allowed.  The highest successful weight lifted cleanly will be the counted weight.

Instructional videos:

We were very impressed with the form improvements we saw in these lifters tonight.  This after only 3 or 4 times of practicing the Snatch before! 
The Power Snatch will be an accepted catch position at the meet.
