Day 3 of the 12 Days of BADASSNESS

Here we go right into day number 3.

On The Third Day of BADASSNESS Travis gave to me…

–> 3 Snatches @ Your Bodyweight (or the heaviest you can handle for a unbroken triple)

The Snatch is by far one of the most complex movements there is when it comes to barbell movements. 

It’s in itself a big part of an actual Olympic Sport.

It takes years to get down the snatch, but this doesn’t mean it’s impossible to do.

It’s all just a matter of progressions.

Check out the video for the details:
