I know that this will be nothing new but with all the talk of loaded carries, occlusion, full body tension etc., I thought some may find this anecdote interesting.
A little while back I hit a big milestone weight for me in the strict press. Nothing was unusual in my programming, just a general linear progression. Now my main training priority is weightlifting but I will admit that I am vain. I like having upper body muscularity and I love to press stuff. My snatch is also awful. So in an effort to improve my snatch, prior to every shoulder press session I did I would warm up with a complex of power snatch + paused overhead Squats, up to a moderately heavy weight. My focus was just to get some extra pulls in, good positioning, overhead stability and hold the bottom position of the snatch for a forced stretch. Some minimally-invasive volume, so I thought.
The very first time I did this, as soon as I went to press, there was an immediate potentiation effect. I was very, very stable overhead, the bar went back overhead nicely and every weight felt incredibly light. In a couple of weeks I pb'd very easily and my shoulders and upper back clearly grew. Great for mobility too. It also made me incredibly sore.
Some of the keys I found with this are to go moderately heavy but remember to keep the volume down and to actively push up against the bar at all times. Once I got to the point where I was powersnathing fair;y significant weight for me, the overhead squat started to become fairly tough and maybe the limiting factor. This was about the right load. The powersnatch wakes you up because of the speed/neural requirements, and the overhead squat requires stability and tension.
Something some of you may want to try if you are moderately proficient at weightlifting.
