E220 | Snatch Balance for Longevity
Episode 220 of the Doc and Jock Podcast is a special one! For the first time in a long time Doc Danny & Coach Joe got together in the same place to talk about the snatch balance how it’s the MOST important movement on the planet.
Olympic weightlifters use the snatch balance to improve their speed & strength into the bottom of the snatch. However it’s probably one of the most beneficial lifts for life. If you look at the movement, the requirements of flexibility are so high that if a field/court athlete train it regularly it may be the difference between a bad cut being a sprained knee instead of an ACL tear . The positional strength requirement of the snatch balance are in such great demand that it an elderly person training it regularly could mean the difference between a slip and fall accident being a trip to the hospital or just an embarrassing moment.
On this episode we talk about how to mobilize for the snatch balance, how to scale it and then how to make it perfect once you own the movement and then encourage you to train it all the time so you can have athletic longevity.
