Let’s focus on the hardest part of the snatch for many people – the overhead squat. This is by far the hardest version of squat because it moves the center of gravity higher than your center of mass. Couple that with shoulder mobility issues and you can take a 300# back squatter down to just 95# or less on the OHS. Focus on keeping your shoulders active and pressing the bar up as you descend into your squat.
The metcon is quick with short runs and a light power snatch. So move well but quickly.
