Let’s compare yesterday’s video of Jay’s Snatch first pull to Jeremy’s powerlifting deadlift setup. Jeremy uses a slightly flatter back angle than he uses for the first pull in his olympic lifts. Notice that the hips still tend to rise slightly at the heavier weight. This is engagement of the hamstrings and forces earlier recruitement of the back and hips. Ideally, this hip rise will not occur, but it is nearly inevitable as the weight gets high enough relative to an athlete’s abilities.
8 cups water

Boil water to dissolve salt, add remaining ingredients & cool brine.
Soak meat overnight (or as time allows), and towel dry the meat to remove excess liquid.
