Notes from the CrossFit Games:
This workout begins with the Athlete holding their jump rope with the barbell loaded to the appropriate weight. After 30 double-unders are completed
the athlete will move to the barbell to perform power snatches. For the power snatch to count, the barbell will move from the ground (or below the
knee if the barbell is unloaded) to the overhead position with the knees, hips and shoulders extended in one line. After the 15 reps, they will move
back to the jump rope and begin the next round.
Every rep counts in this workout. Credit will be given for partially completed rounds. You will enter your result by the total number of reps completed.
Touch and go IS permitted but NO bouncing!
This workout seems familiar?
If you were around doing the open in 2011, it is the exact same workout as 11.1.
Because this workout has been done before there are loads of YouTube videos of people doing this exact workout. Find an athlete with similar strengths and weaknesses as you and see if you can find his or her 11. 1 workout. Good luck!
Are you worried about 14.1?
If you are new to this lift, then I would do a clean and a push press/jerk. It is technically a ground to overhead.
Here are the movement standards:
