Snatch Tech and Christine Benchmark


When we get into many of our barbell movements we sometimes blow passed our setup and start positions. These positions lay the foundation for our movement and can set the tone for lift.

Take a look at the video above which is all about the starting position for the Snatch. Lots of good pointers here to think about and a few other videos you'll see from the same group breaking down the pull and explosive parts of the Snatch as well.

Today when you work on your snatches really try to focus on your start position everytime!

Your WOD today is a CrossFit classic, and requires great pacing to net yourself a strong score. Go hard but not max on the rows, be consistent on the deadlifts, then go fast on those box jumps. Be sure to log your score in BTWB.com and check the percentile scores to see what people are laying down in this wod!
