Role of the Burgener Warm Up
It may be my computer but I can't get the volume to work on this video from the exercise/demo page. With all the other videos I tried the volume worked fine? I am really interested in this particular video, any ideas?

Re: Role of the Burgener Warm Up
the audio worked fine for me.

Basically there are 4 exercises that he walks you through. Each exercise is done 3 times.

1. Snatch grip pull from the hang (1-2-3)
2. Snatch grip Pull from the hang with high and wide elbows (5-4-6)
3. Snatch Grip pull from the hang with high elbows and muscle snatch (7-8-9)
4. Power snatch from the hang (10-11-12)

I hope that is helpful. The idea is to get the body warm, the technique instilled. I didn't quote coach burgener exactly, but that is the gist. A lot of the audio was him counting which movement she (Sage) was doing (1,2,3 or 4,5,6).

I found that my technique was pretty horrid when I first started doing the burgener warm up and it feels much more solid now after only a couple weeks.

you can also google it and get a decent idea of what is involved.
