Hello everyone again,
long time without posting, but always reading.
I was watching a few videos yesterday and I bumped into these two:
While I understand the explanation in the first one, I do not understand its application. Why in the first one there’s so much emphasis on trying to keep the elbows as vertical as possible, while in the second they’re clearly strongly pointed backwards?
Is it due to the fact that the first one is aimed at keeping the balance in a static position, while the second one is a normal snatch pull?
I would like to start doing the first one as well in my sessions.
On a side note, I’m currently off climbing because of a nasty elbow inflammation, and I concentrated even more on Olympic style lifting. I am in love. Not doing anything serious, just some power cleans, snatch pulls, power snatches and the likes and they are amazing. When everything clicks, it’s very much like getting that sense of flow and control while climbing a hard boulder problem. Controlled power.
Moreover, I shed a few grams of fat also!!!
Brilliant stuff from T-Nation.
Cheers for the infos.
