Decided to do hang snatch to work on form, less chance of cheating myself.

95 x? Did this weight till Marie was able to help me correct my extension. Once I got that it felt awesome.

115 x 3/ 125 x 3/ 135 x 1/ 145 x 1/ 155 x? Got out of form a bit so worked at this weight finally got 3 good ones. Needed more speed on extension. Big thanks to Marie as this was the best snatches ever. Huge pr for me on form. Very happy about this.. Great work 6 am er’s…

LoraCongrats Shane! Happy to hear you are feeling better about your form on this lift. Love the focus you have on technique π

LoraReally happy to see lots of diligent work on snatch form today at the 7am class. Very impressed with everyone’s effort. π

PR for form and weight. Focused on set up and extension. Landing could be better but very happy getting under the bar and landing in a squat. Thanks for all the tips Marie-No.

LoraCongrats on your PR Trent! Landing in a full squat is the biggest challenge for most people with this lift. If your form is off, even just a little bit, you can easily fail the lift….sounds like your focus on technique is really paying off.

Snatch day!

Didn’t really noted down what I did… I reaaaally focused on landing low (I haven’t been to Oly class in a long time and IT SHOWS π )

But it looked a little something like this:

5×40

5×40

3×55 + 3 Heaving snatch balance

3×55 + 3 Heaving snatch balance

2×55 +heaving snatch balance … etc.

Finished with the 35# bar alone, because I wanted to be sure to end on a good note with a weight I knew I could land in a full squat without riding down. π

LoraVery happy to see you so focused on your form today (well, you are always pretty focused on form). Landing low, over and over and over again and getting very comfortable with pulling under the bar “at speed” will pay off huge. π

Only 5# off my Power Snatch !RM, and with a full squat so I am very pleased. Wrist held up pretty good so I may be turning a corner.

LoraFirst day back? I thought that was last week? LOL

Sorry I missed you. Sheldon sightings are getting to be more rare than McDavid sightings….

Jackie HSnatch day… Not really my forte. It’s a lot of moves all at once! And my brain cant process them all at the same time. I think I was an over achiever…

Thanks for a great class Jeff, I know I really struggled at these. Thanks for your help.

LoraSnatches are really easy to “over-think”. You are still very new to this movement and it will take lots of practice before it feels “natural”. Don’t get too discouraged. It gets better, I promise π

LoraCraig, impressive numbers for a newbie, particularly with a complex movement like the snatch. Well done π

AmandaSnatch day! Fun!

Did hang squat snatches

50 x a lot…worked on landing.

65 x 7 or 8?

75 x 1

80 x 2

85 x 1

90 x 1 – I think this was a PR?

Really happy with my progress tonight. Happy I chose to do hang squat snatches, I think it’ll help with the squat snatches next time I try them.

LoraCalling it a “squat snatch” is going to drive “you-know-who” crazy…..LOL

AmandaLOL I know. I thought about that when I was writing it. I’m always afraid if I don’t write it I will wonder what I did when I look back at it!
