Client Training Program: Abby McCormick

Abby has been spending the last 5 weeks on specifically refining  positional work in the snatch.

In this last block of training Abby has been working on receiving the bar in the catch. Most faults come from her getting soft shoulders or not finishing her pull in the extension. This video shows Abby hitting a 140# snatch. Abby is coached by OPEX HQ Head Coach Brian Foley.
