today is the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that almost 3,000 americans lost their lives in. it is a day to remember the sacrifice of those who gave everything that day and also a time to pray for protection for those still suffering from health issues related to what happened that day. also those that are out in the front lines, both here and on foreign soil deserve a big thank you and god bless.

In 4 minutes complete as many (bottom paused) UB Snatch Balances @ 135/95# as possible.
Notes: The “bottom pause” portion of the lift is to hold the bottom position for 10 FULL seconds. The goal is to complete the entire piece without dropping the barbell. You may rest in the back rack position. There will be a 20 Burpee penalty for every time the barbell is dropped. The penalty should be performed AFTER the 4 minutes is up.
