Michele Letendre’s Snatching Tips and Advice for CrossFit Open Workout 17.3

"Ok Guys! Here are some of my tips for the snatches for #17point3."

“Ok Guys! Here are some of my tips for the snatches for #17point3.

For the light bars there are a few ways of moving it. Keeping your hip high and using more back is an option to save some legs but I find this turnover quite slow compared to the second technique I used in the light bar video.

The second technique has a more upright torso, a wider stance and a wider grip. This shortens the range of motion and I find is more stable for the shoulders but it does use more legs.

In the heavy bars (swipe for video on the right), setup is everything. You need to attack those bars like a confident PR; aggressive but unassuming.

Here’s what I think about when I lift heavy:

1. setup hips low and pull chest up

2. Raise chest up as I’m pulling the bar into the hips.

3 Jump!

Hope this helps!!”

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
