Many people that have spent a lot of time with A+A training and moved on from swings to snatches felt that snatches are a more potent tool, and can offer more full-body benefits. Others feel similarly about kettlebell C&J.Why have Swings fallen out of favor for A+A protocols? They seem to work rather well, as you attest and at least one Go-Ruck competitor has stated similar results.
I feel like swings are a more blunt tool, where snatches can be more of a precision tool for A+A type training (or any other targeted energy systems training; glycolytic, aerobic, alactic, or A+A). Depending on how one uses the tool, better results could be obtained from either one.
