    If you want to get in to an evening class, but it’s full on ZenPlanner, just shoot me an email and come on in. Everyone needs their snatched worked on.

    Squat Snatch


    I have a bruised heel and I made it worse on my first lift. I managed to match my PR of 135 and felt like I can lift more. Very frustrating but I’m looking forward to get that PR when my heel gets better.

    Wasn’t pretty but it’s the first time I’ve been able to keep 95# overhead with the snatch so I’ll take it πŸ™‚

    This was an exercise that I have never did in my life, looks easier than it is (especially watching Joanna and Patrick do them), really struggled with the timing and balance but lighter weight and practice made this a FUN one.

    To all the newbies….. listen to the coaches as Joanna and Kevin gave me a few tips that made this one much easier.

    Power Snatch x 1 95-105-115

    Didn’t get close to my 135# PR, but it was a great opportunity to work on technique; hip explosion and landing need work…

    Stayed with Hang Power Snatch to work on form (which really started to suffer with heavier weight). First time with this lift, and was nervous about shoulder (still). With more practice it should get better (easier).

    Thanks for the tips Kevin πŸ™‚

    Power Snatch: 55-65-75-65-70-75(f)
    75# didn’t have good form, so reduced the weight to practice. 65# was great, 70# was OK.

    Pretty stoked about the PR, close to body weight, maybe a few pounds light. Took me a few tries at 145.

    Great coaching today Kevin!
