Those of you who’ve ever seen me train know I love to snatch. For me it’s like a golf swing with a heavy barbell. It’s technical yet explosive. Power meets precision. If you watch the video above of Chad Vaughn snatching 286# (130Kg) you’ll get a feel for how good your snatch could be with great technique. The Chinese have a saying – fast, tight, low. Move the bar quickly, keep the bar tight to your body, receive it low in the squat. Today let these 3 words be your mantra: Fast, Low, Tight!
