Mark Rippetoe once said, “The Olympic snatch is gymnastics with a bar.”
I honestly can’t think of another lift which requires such explosive power, strength, flexibility, and a high degree of coordination as a prerequisite. And this is why you can’t just read a book on the snatch or watch a few Olympians throw around monstrous weights, then go replicate good form in the gym. Nor can you take a weekend snatch course and suddenly become a snatch guru.
This lift takes a long a** time to master and we all wants to master this beast of a movement – now you have the opportunity to learn from the best!
A few weeks back I attended a very hands on clinic in Sacramento with Ben Claridad and his team (just google him) and learned a lot from them. We went over all kinds of drills, cues etc in order to improve our mechanics.
Well dear friends, Ben Claridad is coming to HomeGrown Crossfit with his team to help us all become better athletes.
This Sunday, April 6th
Its important for me to point out that this clinic is great for all levels of crossfitters at HGX. Everyone that wants to get better at the lift will benefit of the clinic.
