anybody play around with these?
how much can you do compared to your two arm snatch?
(yes powersnatches count)
I'm fairly sure I've done at least 45kg PS one arm. I wouldn't sit down...much easier to just power it up there then squat with one arm
I powersnatched 40 kg a while back with one arm. I think I tried 60 kg once, but I don't remember getting it.
Thought you meant these:
haha love it!
i can do 15kg with one arm - easy. bit harder with my left arm, but easy with my right. was a little surprised (max snatch 33.5kg) but i guess you use both hips so it isn't so surprising. i didn't think sitting down with it would be possible - but then saw the russian vid. hmm... i reckon these are pretty cool... wonder why there aren't competitions for this kind of shit anymore. or perhaps there are...
They still are in the U.S. I think the org is called the US All-Rround Weightlifting Association (USAWA).
Usually I like it to be quiet before I lock into a rep, but clearly I've been missing out on the training effect of P.T. Barnum hyping me up to the crowd in Russian before I lift
This is the only time I ever do them.
and how much fun was that?!
