Snatch

Snatch:

**How to approach the lifts**

– Max out day! Go by feel and make smooth, calculated jumps in weight early on. Slow down the pace and weights jumps when you reach around 80-85%.

– Try and reach a Max in 6-8 working sets (not including light warm up sets). Only allow yourself 2-3 misses before calling it (don’t want any injuries)
