Video courtesy of Catalyst Athletics. Our Snatch variation this cycle will be the pause Snatch.  Each rep, pull up to the middle of your knee, and pause there for 2 seconds before finishing the Snatch.  The goal with these paused snatches is to teach keeping tension throughout the Snatch.  Far too often have I seen athletes lose a snatch due to letting their body fold up at the start of the Snatch due to not tightening their core and squeezing their shoulder blades.  Do NOT let your body lose tension in this pause, and do NOT re-dip out of the pause.  You should be able to go right back into the upward movement of the Snatch after the pause

Today we’re looking at a bit of a higher skill set and ability to move quickly through those skills.  But, if you still don’t have Muscle Ups or Dubs, don’t worry.  Scale properly, and we will get you one step closer to attaining these goals.  As the reps decrease each round aim to speed up!
