Snatches

Today I worked on 20-kilo kettlebell snatches just a little bit and mostly did full barbell snatches. I’m going to do some 20-kg kb snatches every day or two and see how “easy” they become, and whether they will make me stronger for the barbell snatch. Today I did a bunch of sets of 3 bar snatches up to 3 x 3 at 55 lbs.

Snatches are really fun, and are one of those exercises that feels really empowering. I always end up full of joy and gratitude at being able to do them at all. [/corny] I do them decently well but not heavy. One of my life goals is to still be doing decent snatches in my 70s even if it’s with an empty bar.
