Practice Snatch Test
After the warm up, set a timer for 5 minutes and attempt continuous snatches up to 100 reps. Try alternating sides every x10 reps (x5 rounds left and right). This will feel very challenging at the 60 rep mark (x3 rounds each side). If you fatigue, the bell can be set down, but this should be avoided if possible. If x10 reps being to be too much, reduce to x5 reps each side to finish. Record your finishing time, even if it is after the 5 minute mark.

x4 rounds (depending on time and fatigue)
*rest 60-90 seconds between movements as needed
