Day One of the Olympic Lifting Seminar - The Snatch
Matt getting one on one coaching from Greg Everett
So day one is over our hands are sore (the hook grip is hard work) and we are headed to a seafood restaurant (Legal Seafood) for dinner.
I will be all good as long there is something other than shellfish on the menu.
Today was a huge learning curve, but I think we are starting to get it. we both have a lot of technical parts of the snatch to work on. But it will be good to bring all our knowledge back to CrossFit Great Barrington.
