Default Session 1: the Snatch - 30 MAR

This session was from 30 MAR 12.

To learn the Snatch tonight I divided it into 3 segments and added each segment until the whole movement felt comfortably. This method worked wonderfully and I can't wait to do the same with the Clean and Jerk. On to the first session...


Session A

Technique training/Warm-up

Overhead Squat - 45 x 3/3/3/3/3
Muscle Snatch + Overhead Squat - 45 x 3/3/3/3/3
Low Hang Snatch + Overhead Squat - 45 x 3/3/3

At this point I felt comfortable with the full version of the lift; segmenting worked wonderfully!

Notes
As I said before, this was an amazing session. I really feel like I made great progress and that this method is going to work wonderfully. I'm very excited! Stay tuned.
