MS - hit 130lbs.

I am not sure if I am doing this perfectly. How low are you allowed to get and still consider it a Muscle Snatch?

MHS - 115lbs.

TC+PJ+J - 115lbs.

Jason - You're not getting low at all - the point of the muscle snatch is that everything moves up only - you never rebend the knees or hips to get under the bar - just use the momentum of the hip and knee extension along with the external rotation of the shoulders/arms to get the bar overhead in a fully standing position.

Thanks Greg, I was bending my knees a little bit, but not too much.
