3 hang snatch
5 lateral bar jumps
How’s your snatch? Do you even have one? Is it good? No pun intended, a snatch is one of the most complex Olympic lifts we will do. Training this lift starts today at C.F.S. Here are a few words of wisdom from “The Oly lifting Coach of CrossFit” Mike Burgener who will be here November, 2010 for a two day CrossFit specialty certification, ya I said 2010 that’s how booked out Coach Mike is…
“You don’t drop under the bar! You don’t fall under the bar! You pull yourself under the bar hard and fast!” Mike Burgener says to Jason Khalipa. He isn’t finishing his pulls and is slow to snap underneath the bar. The athlete from CrossFit Santa Clara is strong as an ox and winner of the 2008 Crossfit Games, but he isn’t moving fast enough to snatch big weight. Burgener reminds that strength is worthless in Olympic lifting without speed. “Quit thinking strength, strength, strength,” Burgener demands. “You’ve got to think finesse, finesse, finesse.”
Check out this video by Dutch and his boy Matt Mursky on the snatch. Pretty crazy these guys started out in their garage.
