The Birthday Boys tackle the Dirty Thirty:
This is the “Filthy Fifty” only slightly less filthy. Perfect for a birthday WOD as the “gift” was that Kamran and Jeremy O. both had 20 less reps over completing the “Filthy Fifty” (yes Kamran that is a real WOD and we will do it in the box someday).

Sequence: One Arm Kettlebell Snatch with Michelle
The KB Snatch is a more fluid, powerful continuous movement than the dumbbell snatch (which returns to the floor each time).

This is important to prevent the “flop-over” that can crash into the wrist or forearm causing injury.
