Transition From Muscle Snatch


#1

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...
