Snatch PRs!

How to PR your Snatch:

Create Your Weightlifting Ritual

Watch any high-level lifter closely, and you’ll notice the OCD-like quality to the way they address the barbell. Establish your own consistent routine that puts you in a frame of mind to succeed. Grip the bar in the same place each time. Place your feet in the same location under the bar. Take the same deep breath before you initiate every lift. I ask my lifters to approach each session with intention. Step up to the bar every time with purpose. Visualize what your perfect lift looks like, and execute. Eventually, what you see in your head will become reality.

I’m not saying you can’t play around with different foot or hand placement to find what works best for you, but pay attention to what you are doing. If you are random with your set up, you success will be random. When you walk into the gym, block out the noise of the day and focus on the task at hand. Breaking bad habits is excruciating, so it's best to never form them in the first place.
