“Ok Guys! Here are some of my tips for the snatches for #17point3.

For the light bars there are a few ways of moving it. Keeping your hip high and using more back is an option to save some legs but I find this turnover quite slow compared to the second technique I used in the light bar video.

The second technique has a more upright torso, a wider stance and a wider grip. This shortens the range of motion and I find is more stable for the shoulders but it does use more legs.

In the heavy bars (swipe for video on the right), setup is everything. You need to attack those bars like a confident PR; aggressive but unassuming.

Here’s what I think about when I lift heavy:

1. setup hips low and pull chest up

2. Raise chest up as I’m pulling the bar into the hips.

3 Jump!

Hope this helps!!”
