is the snatch balance a percentage of your max snatch balance or max snatch?
Greg Everett 2009-10-05
% of snatch bal max, but if you don't have one, use your max snatch. if your snatch is limited considerably by technique, you'll need to bump up the weights.

Ok, Greg--forgive me for naivete, I'm interested in the Riser as a training modality--how does it complement, etc. Much appreciated...
Greg Everett 2009-10-06
Erik - Very simple - just increases the range of motion to work through that bottom position. Good way to work strength from the start position, posture, and just to get some variety.

How do you get that flexible for overhead squats? Repetition?

I guess what I mean are how can you stretch the achilles and patellar tendon to get that deep and maintain such a perfect lumbar curve?
matt 2009-10-07
By the way I meant is instead of are... and thanks ahead of time for responding...
