If you want to improve your snatch, Mike Burgener has the three-part answer.
“We’ll break you down into drills, parts, and we’re going to train those parts so that you don’t have to think about it,” he explains. “Then we’re going to put it all together. By the end of the day, you’re going to be doing three-position snatches.”
First, it’s his Junkyard Dog Warm-Up, then the Burgener Warm-Up, followed by skill-transfer exercises. To put it all to good use, the series is followed by three snatches from the high-hang position.
All the while, you’re saying to yourself, “’I’m practicing for a purpose,’” Burgener says.
Do the three-part, eight-minute drill every time you walk into your box and your snatches will get better, Coach B. promises.
“If I do that every single day—takes me eight minutes every single day—you will be amazed on how much you’re going to improve.”
