I had this guy come into the gym…
His beard was all ZZ Top. His workout clothes were red. And they were a bit too revealing of his jelly-like belly.
He wanted to know how to snatch, and he needed to know how to do so FAST.
He was remarkably impatient for a man who only works one day a year. But I was accommodating.
After all, my systems have been developed for real people in the real world, and to work quickly and effectively.
That said, I got the distinct feeling this dude did NOT live in the real world … he seemed a bit delusional.
Something about a sled flying through the sky, stuffing his ass down chimneys, etc…
Here’s the advice I gave him. Just 3 ideas. Do these, and you’ll be snatching better than you ever believed possible in less than 2 weeks.
STEP ONE – Technique
Follow my (shockingly simple to learn) 3-step formula for learning snatch technique.
You can find that in Romancing the Snatch!
STEP TWO – The Program
Follow the first phase of my beginners guide to Olympic lifting. Most people can get through this in just 2 weeks.
You can find that in my book, Samurai Strength!
STEP THREE – Don’t Be A Punk, Santa!
You’ve come this far learning how to snatch, now it’s time to learn how to jerk. What kind of punk only learns ONE of the Oly lifts, anyway?
Check out my guide, Romancing the Jerk!
That was 6 weeks ago… and Santa just entered his first contest. He made 2 out of 3 of his snatches, and all 3 of his clean and jerks. Good day!
Sure, The Tooth Fairy still kicked his ass (Brushing your teeth is very important).
But it was a great experience. And he’ll be back and lift even more next time.
You should have seen his singlet… Lord … this guy NEEDS help with his fashion choices.
Dude, drop the red, go with pink. Seriously …
If you’d like to follow in Santa’s footsteps, you can get ALL 3 of the above guides for simply trying out your trial membership of Weightlifting Academy.
Now go lift something heavy,
