Helping You Fail Fewer Snatches
The Open WOD 17.2 saw some absolutely amazing performances, with many people getting their first T2B or even BMU.
Congratulations to GLC2000 athletes Samantha Briggs & Emma Mcquaid who after 2 open workouts are sitting in 1st and 8th place in the world!
Bye Bye Dumbells – Hello Chest to Bar & Barbell
Workout 17.3 is going to be challenge for a lot of people because of the large weight jumps in the snatch. So when you’re warming up try to get a couple of successful lifts close to your target snatch weight. After you’ve mobilised!
If you might be attempting to reach or exceed your 1RM snatch, remember you will likely have a heavily fatigued upper back. To help minimise fatigue here are a selection of simple drills with a BIG focus on upper back that will improve your positioning. We have introduced a bottom up approach to mobilise all the major joints for an efficient and comfortable snatch position under heavy loads.
Check out our 6 minute video for some valuable mobility and warmup tips that will mean fewer snatch fails and maybe an extra 4 minutes in 17.3:
