10/22/2015 It’s Snatch-tober!


Mel getting some explosive hip action during a well executed box jump.

Has anyone noticed we’ve been working a little on our snatches lately?!  A little snatch skill here, a little snatch WOD there…

Through the month of October we have been sprinkling in a little snatch work and skill transfer exercises for one of the most technical lifts we perform in the gym.  Hopefully you are all feeling a little more comfortable with your snatch abilities!


Snatch Pull


The snatch pull is the most common snatch-related strength exercise.  The snatch pull is a basic and important exercise for training the extension of the snatch in terms of strength, speed, power, posture and balance. Lifters will be able to manage heavier weights than in the snatch, which allows the development of strength to push weights in the snatch. The snatch pull can also be used as a remedial exercise to practice balance and position in the pull, or as part of a learning progression for the snatch.
