Many of you identified a goal of improving your snatch during your Check-in and Goal Setting session with Coach Leslie. We are excited that so many of you are interested in improving your Olympic Weightlifting technique. Coach Jon and Coach Leslie have advanced specialty training in Olympic Weightlifting and they are excited to help all of you improve your technique. This week we are starting a 6 week snatch technique cycle. We will be snatching once a week. Get ready!
Today's MWod video was created to help folks get ready and be efficient in CrossFit Games Open Workout 12.2. KStar has great technique tips to help you improve your movement. Notice his prioritization of external and internal shoulder rotation. Getting those shoulders ready to extend and rotate is important for today's workout. After you've warmed up your shoulders, spend a few moments getting those hips ready for all of these snatches. Try working on your mobility before you get to the gym today. Then hit it again with a coach in today's class.
