The class will have lots of skill-work, correction and feedback on the Snatch. The Oly Snatch portion is 1hr 15min, which is followed by 45 minutes of SMR (Self-Myofascial Release) to help with mobility and recovery. The SMR portion will be taught by Peter Johnson who holds a Master Level 1 Certification in SMR.
