The Movement Fix Ep. 5: Snatch Bar Path

By Dave Thomas
Performance360 Coach, USAW, CPT, CNC, Russian Kettlebell

What is The Movement Fix?
It is a video series where we will be addressing and improving any single aspect of our training. It may be mechanics of a major movement, ways to get more out of smaller movements, how to efficiently pace your workout or any instance we can spend a few minutes educating you.

What will today’s episode cover?
What should the bar path look like no the snatch” is a common question for beginners. Today, we will review just how easy the snatch is to learn. It’s all about pulling the bar up rather than swinging it out.

What happens if I don’t watch?
You run the risk of swinging the bar out away from your body, which will not only decrease how much you can lift, but makes the landing unsafe.

Total watch time:
1m 54s
