Mastering the Split Snatch

Here are a few clips of Kara's progress over the last 5 weeks. After training for a few days, it became clear to me that Kara would benefit from trying the split snatch. If someone has ankle, hip flexor, or shoulder/t-spine mobility limitations, the split snatch can be a great alternative. It is a very beautiful, athletic movement, as Kara demonstrates. Can you see the changes in her posture and overall mobility?

Thanks for posting this Tracy. This confirms the idea that patience in progressivly working technique with lighter loads allows for mastery of the movement and therefore, eventual heavy loads with great technique!
