Lung burn

Five rounds for time of:

135 pound Deadlift, 9 reps

135 pound Hang power snatch, 6 reps

135 pound Overhead squat, 3 reps

This WOD is written out where your bar is loaded with one weight (I believe rx for mens is 135#), but since I was doing this on my own in the middle of the day, I opted to load 2 separate bars, since a 40# deadlift would be cake. 

This put me on my ass. 40#s is conservatively light IMHO, but for some reason the hang power snatch had me in submission. Jumping the bar up and getting underneath it was still very taxing. Then to stabilize it to overhead squat.

I liked this WOD a lot. Because I've been having some type of cold with chest/sinus infection, I really felt the lung burn afterwards... Really tight and hot, like there was not in my chest. Had me coughing all types of crazy shit.
