  3. SNATCH DAY! πŸ™‚

    Lots of great mobility.

    Awesome overview on the different methods of snatching by Mr.Wood.

    First time getting some weight overhead in awhile which is a PR for me and it felt great.
    Thanks Kevin and great job nooners, big class!

      1. Yes! Thanks to lots of mobility and physio by our lovely Vanessa and refusing to stop working out because of my injury, I’m getting there.

    Worked on Power Snatch

    Things to keep in mind:

    -Begin with bar on ground
    -Remember deadlift
    -Keep butt down and raise torso first
    -Get under the bar landing in squat position, not pausing and going into overhead squat.

    Thank you Kevin for the guidance, it really helped visually seeing what I was doing wrong. Now I have it burned in my brain and know exactly what I need to work on. Makes sense.

  10. OLY class

    showed up for oly kinda thinking it would be snatch day there too, but it was clean & jerk with a SUPRISE mock Olympic Weightlifting Comp! This was a huge learning experience…there are some very technical aspects of my lifts that need to be corrected, and it was such a fun way to get a taste of what it would be like to do this for real.

    1st attempt
    61 kg (135#) – lift was good

    2nd attempt
    66 kg (146#) – landed without right elbow locked out, then locked out and stood it up, bad lift (but would be ok in CrossFit)

    3rd attempt
    68 kg (150#) – adjusted the bar higher after the clean (bad lift) – but Kevin didn’t tell me so I would still try the jerk, so I did and I landed it!!!!

    My 3rd attempt may not have been to the olympic weightlifting standards but it was my first time landing 150# (failed at Spring Fling) and I’m excited about it, 5# PR if I count it and now I know I can do it…just to work on the little things. My dip and jump were holding me back and I could feel the improvement tonight, now I need to work on punching the bar up for the jerk and locking out!

    Thanks so much Kevin, this was really fun!!!

  11. – Mob
    – WUx1 (15 reps)

    Power snatch x2
    65-85-65-65-65-85-95-115 (ugly)-95-95
    (thing to work on for next time = land with my butt back)

    Cashout #1 = 1 mile run

  12. Great mobility stuff this am… Really needed the one with knees on abmat with hands on the floor front with swaying of hips from side to side… Didn’t know it but have been looking for this stretch for a long time!!

    Worked on power snatches (didn’t have my wrist raps for full ohs) and kept it light as my lower back has been tight in the last few days

    Worked up to 50# and stayed there

    Tips to remember:
    No flexing of neck
    Move knees back(while hugging the bar against thighs)

    Love those videos Patrick!! The edge did seem quite edgy!!

  13. Snatch Day:

    Started out working on the full snatch
    2x 35-55-60-65-70
    Then switched to the power snatch to fix some technique
    2x 70-65-70-75-75

    Need to remember to push knees back first and then extend vertically before landing under the bar.
    Kevin got me to practice the snatch grip deadlift and the shrug to get used to the movements.

  14. Snatch day
    10 sets of 2 reps
    2 x 35, 55, 55, 55, 55, 60, 60, 65, 70, 70, 75, 80f, 75
    Get under bar faster, don’t dip too low
    Work on getting more comfortable in a low squat
