Default Negative effects of KB Snatches?

Due to limited time and lots of travel with the current schedule, I'm trying to focus on high rep swings/snatches to work on more conditioning.

Is there a downside to focusing too heavily on these movements? Will I be over emphasizing the posterior chain and neglecting the anterior to some detriment I'm overlooking?

Thanks for your insight.

Nope. Add in some sort of goblet squat or something if you're concerned or if KBs are all you've got.

Look up GS assistance exercises for other ideas

As Derek says, add in some goblet squat + some clean & presses + some TGUs and you'll be good.

Pavel should write a programme based on this...oh, wait, he did.

Mix the conditioning with the slower stuff - don't hammer yourself (and your elbows) with snatches-snatches-snatches all day, every day. If you've got several kbs of different size, vary the weight you use.

If you do a lot of cycling the swings will do you the power of good but do them right, none of this CadioBlitzTabatasquatswing (TM) nonsense.

I have to agree - TGUs are about the best overall KB exercise there is that should be mandatory in any program using KBs.
