Please take the time to read the post below on LIMITED Flexibility. When we are in class and a trainer takes your weight down or makes you go back to the PVC we have a reason. Focus how Burgener tells this young girl that she might have that problem fixed in a year.
Snatching With Limited Flexibility By Mike Burgener At the recent CrossFit Tour stop in Big Sky, Mont., Olympic-weightlifting coach Mike Burgener hosted a clinic and of course handed out some burpees. In this clip, he helps Olivia Swant of CrossFit Billings with her overhead squat. To start, she does an overhead squat with a PVC pipe. “Oh, God,” Burgener says. First, he checks her stance, grip and position. Then he finds the limits of her range of motion. After that, Burgener has Swant stand with a PVC pipe overhead and begin to squat. “Stop. Bring me the hips,” he repeats multiple times as she goes down further, inches at a time. “One year from now, if I don’t have you doing that perfectly, I’m fired,” Burgener adds. He then recommends Swant temporarily use the split snatch, as well as overhead lunges in place of overhead squats. Burgener explains: “That is the overhead squat for the split until we get strong enough.”
