Coach Mike Burgener breaks down the key points of Chad Vaughn’s lifts at the CrossFit-USAW Open.
Chad Vaughn opened the snatch competition at the CrossFit-USAW Open with 132 kg. He made the weight easily, which isn’t that surprising considering Vaughn is an Olympian who was lifting only days after finishing 20th in the 77-kg class at the World Weightlifting Championships in Antalya, Turkey.
Vaughn went on to put on a show at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, making every lift on his way to a 313 total. In this new series, Coach Mike Burgener explains how Vaughn got the weight overhead.
