Yesterday at VERSUS 9 we hit The Total again: this time maxing out a hang snatch, a thruster, and a rack jerk. All three of these movements end showing the overhead position in complete control.
The overhead position is important in it’s skill transfer ability to the handstand. Locking out the knees and hips, squeezing the abs to keep the back flat, opening the shoulder, and pressing the arms to full lockout of the elbow are present in both upright and upside down positions.
