Here is my go-to Snatch Warm that gets me mobile and ready Snatch every time. 🏋🏽♀️ FYI I’m using my @roguefitness Barbell! 😘 – Perform 5 reps of every movement in this order: > Inch Worms > Snatch Grip (Behind the head) Press > Snatch Grip (Behind the head) Press in a Quarter Squat > Snatch Grip (Behind the head) Sots Press > Jumping Squats with barbell on back (continuous) > Ninja Squats on either side (ideally with the barbell on your back but you can take it off if you can not balance.) > Muscle Snatch from the Hang > Then perform what every Snatch your about to do. 😉 – & YOU READY TO GO! 👌🏽 Tag a mate who would like this warm up. …….……….……….……….……….……….……….……….……….… If your an aspiring athlete or coach that wishes to take their training / athletes to the next level head to my website (tiaclair.com) or the link in my bio and sign up to my #TFitness online program.
