Who does em? How much? And @ what body weight?
Snatch 205 @160lb
Too technical of a movement for me to attempt properly...
I rarely do them anymore as I'm no longer in a weightroom with platforms but my PR is 221 at BW of 174. Can't imagine I'd sniff that currently
Yeah it was something I was pretty proud of but unfortunately my venue changed and now even heavy O/H squats have fallen off simply bc I don't feel comfortable ditching metal plates on the floor where I currently train. Anyone with respectable olympic lift numbers and sound form gets automatic respect in my book. You've got a damn good number there yourself
I haven't done them since high school football.
Best was 185@140. I'm stronger now, but I haven't practiced the technique in a long time, doubt I'd touch it again without a good month of practice first (and even then it's questionable)

Haven't attempted them in a long time. So I would say the bar haha.
That's awesome. I don't do them often, although I love snatch pulls and snatch high pulls, and overhead squats. Best was 195 @ 200 lbs.
Are you a crossfitter or do you actually train Olympic lifts? No flaming intended, I just see a difference between the two.
But, I think what we are starting to see with most of the top level crossfit competitors is a shift away from the traditional Glassman Mantra of random WOD's and an actual focus into blocks of specific work, periodization, and specificity. Like I said, I'd love to get out a questionnaire to the national qualifiers to see if this is actually the case.

The owner of the gym I train at is an Elite powerlifter. The biggest majority of gym patrons are crossfitters with a small majority of fellow powerlifters. The owner got his crossfit certification along with a few others and they've actually implemented somewhat of a block periodization for all of the main movements. The rest of the WOD is just the normal crazy crossfit stuff. If you're interested ZR I can send you their link of WODs.
This is how I feel. Also believe this is how it should be. Don't mind programming like this. It is the glassman of random bs that irritates me.Originally Posted by ZiR RED
Every one who competes at an Elite level are using very good programming.
Ya what is business savvy and what is most effective isn't always the same.Originally Posted by ZiR RED
Basically what happened to a friend of mine. The crossfit box he was going to lost all of its trainers except the owner. Now the workouts are programmed for the masses and not specialized. Plus he is pushing members to get certified to become trainers for him.
Not to worry people just ignore scientific data that contradicts their position anyway.
