This could not be more true! I love snatches. I think when you can do it right they are one of my favorite lifts to watch someone do. They just look pretty. But to do them. I think, no I know they are one of the hardest lifts to do! Ughhh I do not get along with them at all. I have 3 things that I have been struggling with the most. The first and the worst being Snatches, then Double Unders, and Overhead Squats. So I guess we’ll see how today’s wod goes. I would think the more I do them the better I will get. That is how it works right? lol

    i hear you on the snatches….so much going on in that lift. We are doing hang squat snatches as today’s strength WOD…I don’t mind the actual snatch part of it, but the squat part of it stresses me out! Like you said..hopefully we get better the more we do!

  2. We worked on our snatches Monday night and I agree with you. They look so cool, but it feels so awkward to me. and form is SO important!

    I love the snatch…it’s a lift that I can “get” but I haven’t mastered the squat part either. I’ve fallen a couple times, but I will not let that stop me. Don’t let that snatch defeat you!
