Snatch Stimulus Package Update.

January 21, 2014

So here’s a little update for you guys regarding my FREE snatch technique clinic on the 9th.  We’re definitely going to have a full house and my rusted anvil of a heart just can’t turn people away.  So here’s how it’s going to go down.

I’m going to go ahead and assume that not everyone attending is going to want to touch weights and especially not want to work up to a heavy single like I usually have people do at these things.  THAT’S OK.  There is STILL benefit to observing the teaching process and learning what to look for when other people lift weights.

I’m going to begin the session like I usually do at seminars and explain to everyone my training process.  This is all the boring stuff that no one wants to hear but it is literally the most important stuff I have to say.  Learning to snatch competently is just one part of the equation.  The other part is how you go about making improvements to it through training. I’m not going to claim that my process is the BEST process but it has produced a few national caliber athletes in a relatively short amount of time.

I will then break everyone up into groups.  These will probably be BIG groups since there will be approximately HELLA people there.  Our lifting space can only safely accommodate so many lifters a once, so I will explain to you the ground rules and lifting etiquette at that time.

We will then walk through a step by step process, breaking down the individual components of the snatch and then piecing it all together at the end.  I’ll either have myself or one of my lifters demo what we will be working on, I’ll give you a few landmarks to watch out for and then we’ll break for a few minutes to practice in our groups.  You will essentially be coaching each other and we will be floating around making sure everything looks good.

At the end, 20 people or so (sorry, that’s all that the platform can handle if we maintain an efficient rotation) will take the full snatch to a heavy single; NOT NECESSARILY A MAXIMUM SINGLE.  I will be lifting as well so you can see that I actually know what I’m talking about and it’s also helpful to see what it’s supposed to look like.

Then we’ll get a big ass group picture and then eat hot dogs and Diet Pepsi.  There’s going to be a good crowd, so if you wanted to bring anything like chips and dip so we can all hang out afterwards, I’d appreciate it.
