Lifting with Grace


Programming for Saturday, September 28, 2013

When executed with patience, poise, and balance, the two most ballistic movements we perform — the clean and snatch — appear graceful and effortless. In a sense, the effort in these olympic lifts comes much before the actual lift itself. It comes from the discipline to practice them often and the determination to detect and refine even the tiniest flaws in form. Though in today’s workout we are trying to establish our capacity for these two movements, we encourage you to view every lift as an investment in the next, moving you closer and closer to that effortless and graceful state.
