Lately my snatch technique has felt so weird. I can't really decide whether I want to do more of a hardstyle technique or more of a GS style. Right now I'm kind of in the middle, a little bit of both. Perhaps many of you have gone through this. I first started using KB's in 2002 and I still feel like I'm learning how to use them.
Either way the process of seeing what works for my body is fun and exciting. And we just got in a new 24kg from dragon door as I sold one of my older KB's around 4 years old. The newer gloss on the Dragon Door KB's is different and I'm not sure which ones I like more. For TSC comp's I prefer the rougher finish of the older DD kettlebells.
Front Squats (holding onto 1 KB in front of my body)
16kg 5 x 10 reps
* This really helped opened up my hips and made my snatches so much easier. If some of you have not tried this, do it. Grab a light KB and do anywhere from 4 to 5 sets of 10 reps of rock bottom squats. You will notice that by the time you get to snatches your legs and hips will feel great and warm.
Clean and Press
32kg 1 x 1/1
28kg 4 x 1/1
24kg 11 x 5/5 = 110 reps
24kg 4 x 4 reps
