Day 25: Get Low, Get Low, Get Low, YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Why is one of the whitest people in america posting a lil jon video?    It is because during his lifts he has to always remember to get his ass to the floor.

During many of the full squat strength exercises I find that it hurts to get super low, or that I just do not trust myself enough to keep my balance.  This mornings lift was really technical, the full squat snatch.  It involves lifting the bar from the ground and performing an overhead squat (essentially), but the minor details of the lift are what gets me.  You have to jerk the bar up and then squat under it and lift yourself.  Sounds simple right?   Nope.  You want to "catch" the bar when you are at your full squat position.  I repeatedly would catch the bar too high and have to repeat the squat.  Not fun to use double the energy.  Below is a video of someone doing it correctly..well I think it's correctly.

The moral of the story is that you have to get low to do the snatch right.  (It never gets old)
