At least not to full lockout.
Never power snatched before in my life. Even if I did though, I doubt I could do 225lbs.
What constitutes a "power snatch"?
A power-snatch. From ground to full lockout of extended arms.
Youtube it for a more specific demonstration.
i doubt it. i cant drop weight in my gym so i probably will never attempt it for the time being
is that good form?
I bet i could bang that for 200
And you don't squat to even parallel when catching.... probably 3/4 squat at best.
lol 265 pounds on that , hell no
I don't drop it either at my gym when I do any oly lift.
I have to ask C4, you don't drop the weight when you do multiple reps, do you?
Maybe with a few months practice?
If I were to try it right away... not a chance.
and yes the weight is dropped between each rep, but we try to 'lower' it in a controlled manner, dont want to ruin the weights/platforms unneccessarily
edit - however when you are doing bodyweight+ O lifts, it starts to become extremely taxing/possibly dangerous to try to lower the weights.. well, maybe bodyweight+15kg or so you could hurt yourself trying to catch then lower
Out for sure.
its very slow and the setup wasnt the best
http://youtube.com/watch?v=rvljfgGqRa4 probably a better one.. much faster
Out. But that's the goal. 190 should be achievable, but I only started doing them like 4 months ago. I'm at a measly 115 right now.
negative on that
maybee 185-200, not BW
I'm trying it tomorrow I'll let you know, 230lbs...2 plates and a 2 1/2
yeah, i hit 90kg at 74kg last week
and i cant drop the weights at my gym, you get used to lowering it after a while, even when it gets heavy
Power Snatch is officially my girlfriend's new nickname for the next couple of weeks
If timber can't do it, I definitely can't
I'm close though. Just a inch or so from locking out. One day I really do have to post a vid so that Gogz, C4 or MP18 could give me pointers....
