After the workout today I tried out a short smoker that I read about in an old article by Rob Lawrence. I was really surprised at the difficulty in keeping to the breathing patterns during the ladders.
The protocol calls for:
Snatch 1/1 - Then 1 Deep Breath (Inhale/Exhale)...The longer the breath, the better.
Snatch 2/2 - 2 Deep Breaths
And so on up to 5/5.
We did 3 ladders of this matching breaths to snatch reps. I actually looked forward to picking up the kettlebell the longer this went on. Definitely worth trying out!
Here's a couple of videos (one I've posted on here before), but they're a good reminder of our many blessings and the power of the human spirit.

This one was on an old post by Yoana Snideman, RKC-TL. Truly Inspirational!
We all have so much to be thankful for!
