Power Snatch Practice Session

One of my friends made one of my favorite cookies on Friday night and sent me home with some — big mistake! One bite and it’s like a drug — it turned into probably 6 and maybe even more cookies in the span of 5 minutes. I couldn’t help myself. That was basically my lunch yesterday — and in the spirit of sharing honestly, I was sick this morning because of it.  Having been gluten free with the exception of a bite or 2 here or there for about almost 2 months — my stomach was not prepared nor happy about the gluten assault I thrust upon it.  And it let me know — eating those cookies was so not worth the revenge the next day.

A special Plumbline Training essentials class on Power Snatch technique was on tap for my mid morning workout today —

It’s an advanced move and I have been struggling with it for a while. We started off practicing different stages and forms of snatch with a wood dowel, then progressed to a 15lb barbell, and ended with a 45lb barbell.  We did a good ole snatch, hang clean snatch, and finally power snatch. My shoulders and legs are aching from holding the position for extended periods of time trying to get used to the feeling of it –and at one point Michael had us close our eyes and squat into it so we could remember and feel the movement.  We progressed over the course of 45 mins —
