    great article on shoulder pain, most of us older crossfitters deal with this, recently I’ve been going with a split snatch tech. which has helped me tremendously. you’ve probably seen this video:
    It shows the Burgener warm up using the split snatch instead of the over head plus its a great demo and explanation of the split. for all you shoulder sufferers its a MUST VIEW

    Awesome video! I could not get under the bar for the snatch or even a clean for the longest time ( my whole year of Crossfit ) definitely a little mental fear of that weight being overhead and also flexibility- my body just froze once I put some weight on that bar and attempted dropping into that squat.
    Then George showed me the split snatch one day which I’ve been applying and my weight has increased.
    Game changer!
    I am a huge fan of the split snatch! Thanks for sharing this video!

    We’re doing skill work tomorrow. We’ll be showing the Snatch receiving the barbell in the split position. Lisa introduced it to me a while back. but I just started doing it on a regular basis recently. I wanted to receive the bar in a squat, but it just doesn’t work that well for me. I’ve been showing the split here and there, but we’ll make it more widespread starting tomorrow.

    Mike Burgener explains it very well in the video.
