Snatches and wall balls

WOD: 3 rounds of:
  • 25 snatch (75lbs/45lbs)
  • 25 Wall Ball (20lbs/12lbs)
These are full squat snatches as in your hips are below parallel at the receiving position of the bar.

Time = 22:00.

After doing several snatches I had to dumb it down to 65lbs -- and it was still not easy given the sorry state of my right shoulder. I'm having great difficulty holding the bar behind my head, resulting in a ridiculously wide squatting stance to compensate (not to mention leaning forward on my toes).

This lack of shoulder mobility is also impacting on my overhead squats. I need to lessen the loads when doing anything involving a sustained overhead movement.
