Bailey, who finished sixth at this year’s CrossFit Games, is a former college sprinter whose best 400-meter time was 47 seconds.
In this video, the Pose Method creator watches Bailey run and offers advice: less effort. Romanov demonstrates his point by having Bailey do hang snatches with an empty bar.
“I cannot do anything with my body if I’m weighted,” Romanov explains.
More efficient running will mean more efficient weightlifting, he adds.
Games General Manager Justin Bergh explains it simply: “You unweight and you change pose.”
A quick study, Bailey learns how to unweight his body in both his running and his snatching after just one session with Romanov.
“Easy” is how Bailey describes snatching afterward. “Almost like coasting down.”
