Transition From Muscle Snatch


So I've recently started doing the Muscle Snatch for shoulder stability and health. Obviously I'm pretty weak at this move, right now I'm sitting at about 25 x 5 (kgs).

At around what weight should I start the switch to a regular Snatch starting from the floor? Any ideas? Or should I just go based on feel?


Learn proper form first then see how much weight you can do with proper form.


I wouldn't go on 'feel' alone, I learned from the floor only to find out later from a coach my form wasn't so great. Continuously practicing from the hang set me straight. Just gradually start the hang lower and lower...
