I’m Addicted to Snatch

30 Nov

A lift that I use to hate for many reasons…  reasons; I was unfamiliar with the movement, not flexible enough, not strong enough, not not not..  Now it’s one of my favorite lifts to do…  The last couple of weeks I have probably done close to 200+ lifts or variations of the Snatch.  Snatch Balance, Power Snatch, Hang Power Snatch, Hang Snatch, Muscle Snatch, Split Snatch.  I have kept the weight low in order to get the lift perfected, or as close to perfection as possible.  I can remember Carey coming home from Coach Burgener’s Oly lifting Seminar (a few years ago) and telling me all about it.. the one thing that stood out the most was that he demanded excellence in the lifts.. he didn’t care about weight.  So that is where I am at… getting familiar with the lift, being explosive, the weight will come…

    I can only say that I have my problems with the snatch as well. Love the exercise, but it beats me down every time I get carried away!

    Keep up the good work!
