One Hand Snatch Submissions

Great submissions this week! We have our first co-winners, Mike Rojas and Manny Cortez from Strong 101 Gym! Great work fellas!

Check it out, below, as Mike and Manny lay waste to a 115-lb dumbbell, paying it no regards – snatching it to the sky and then discarding it like 115-lbs of losing lottery tickets. Absolute domination – forget about it!

Mike Rojas / Manny Cortez

Josh McIntyre

In addition, we had a two-way tie for the next highest weight, 100-lbs. Josh M. hit it multiple times with a normal sized dumbbell and his facial expression remained the same throughout the entire set, as if he were Michael Myers about to slit a throat in the Halloween movies.

Ben Edwards

Ben Edwards ripped out one rep with 100-lbs, but he also used a beautiful thick bar implement that he attained from Al Meyers, a true thing of beauty. Who knows how many he could have gotten with a conventional dumbbell.

Chris Vaughn

Chris Vaughn was right there, close by with an estimated 99-lb Snatch, also on a thick bar handle which looked very easy. I think Chris has the potential to be a force for future challenges.

Christopher Smith

At just 140-lbs, Christopher Smith came in with 80-lbs, but with the exceptional adherence to quality form and multiple reps, I think we can all agree that he had more in the tank. I am looking for Chris to keep sending in videos. Great work.

I hope everybody had a great training week! Enjoy your weekend. If you are training tomorrow or Sunday, set a PR for me, because I will be setting one for you!

All the best.
