The scaled version of this today is just going to be working your form on the snatches. Just do 5 light reps every round instead of climbing.These types of workouts always produce PR's. Build up slow and make all the jumps you need to get you at those PR attempts at the end. You can go up every round or every other round. Do what makes you feel good.

Metcon (Weight)

Every 7min. X 5 Rounds:
400m run
400m Row
15 pull-ups
3 Snatches (climbing)

(Stagger the start) 

I would also like everyone to get a good amount of weight on the bar BEFORE this thing kicks off. Having a challenging weight on the whole time is really going to make this workout great or so so... We had our max session of squats yesterday and our max deadlifts tomorrow, so I thought today would be a great day for the cardio this week.

If snatches are still not your strong suit, then go lighter and sets of 5-6 reps or complete them from the hang instead if that is more comfortable right now. Remember... LATS, chest tall, and SWEEP into that hip crease.
