Jason, you need to work on your form here. I see that you really "heart" snatch, but be careful with your form or you could hurt yourself.

Jason Struck, RKC said...

yup.

Beaner said...

LOL, it's called "snatch".

Jason Struck, RKC said...

don't laugh. people injure themselves all the time snatching.

TOTALLY TRUE.

Crandall, ASFA said...

Hey Jason, I'm glad you realize the danger of this movement. I have witnessed clients due serious damage to their shoulders, back, and knees working this movement before I helped them. I'm glad you recognize the serious nature of this lift. Improve your form for safety, always!!!!!

Jason Struck, RKC said...

SHIT YEAH I DO!

But I am still gonna snatch every day. Sometimes 2-3 times a day.

Like they do in Mother Russia.

Crandall, ASFA, CPT said...

Oh, my bad Jason, I didn't realize you were Russian. But check this out, if you live in America, which I'm guessing you do, Americans train hard and well too, and had a tremendous showing in the last World's strongest man competition, with 4 of the top 10 dudes! If you are Russian, my apologies, but if you are American, try to be patriotic man, it will help you out. And always remember, SAFETY FIRST!!!!!!

Jason Struck, RKC said...

In Russia, safety firsts you.

Crandall, CPT, AFPA said...

Jason, I am not as familiar with Russia as you are since you are at least part Russian, but I'm not sure what you mean by "Russia firsts you". That doesn't make sense to me. Is it a communist mantra or something? Let me know!!!

Jason Struck, RKC said...

no, it's a Yakov Smirnov joke.

A popular american comedian, one which many people who grew up in the USA are familiar with.

Crandall, CPT, AFPA said...

Very funny Jason!!! I remember Yakov, very funny! I know you heart snatch, but remember, start off with the movement and get the base fundamentals down first before adding much weight, then move up after you have mastered the form. You can do it bud!!!!

your confidence in me has inspired me to work out.

thank you.
