"Wait For It" Snatching

January 21, 2015

We’ll do some Snatch work today.  Right now my 2 favorite Snatch drills are the ‘No Hook, viagra No Foot’ Snatch, pilule which really trains and aggressive turn over and the Pause Snatch, cost which emphasizes keeping the bar close. For many lifters, working for the hang is easy because the bar is in good position – close to the body.  Oftentimes, when we pull from the floor, our flexibility or the sheer weight of the bar (darn you, gravity!) pulls the bar away.  The 2 second pause on the Pause Snatch will address this.  Do not short the pause!  Have a buddy count to 1 watermelon, 2 watermelon – then you may Snatch.

Other counting options: Mississppi, Bubblegum, Chimichanga, Cheesburger.  I may be food obsessed.
