Re: Snatch

Thanks! I just purchased a pair of Oly shoes this week. I told myself I wasn't going to get any until I had better mechanics. The clubs don't make the golfer until he knows how to properly swing...

Re: False Grip

My goal is strict muscle ups before December, basically stuck on the transition. It seems far more difficult, if maybe not even possible to do the front uprise strict? So I am focusing on the false...
