Geek P.O.D.: Start well, Finish well.


A good start position for any movement is critical to making that movement effective and efficient. Look at weightlifting itself. You start in a poor position, 99% of the time you will end up in a poor finishing position.

And like I always say, there's no time to correct a bad start. So start good and finish good!

If you would like more on the start position for the Snatch, here are some interesting reads:
