A Few Things to Focus on in the Snatch
The snatch is a much easier movement to learn than the clean. Here’s how to simplify it.
- Think about the barbell moving as a result of your jump and your shrug, not your arms. The more power you create from your lower half, the better.
- Pull the barbell up, do not swing it out. The bar path should be mostly vertical.
- Drop under the bar quickly.
Jump and catch. Jump and catch. Jump and catch.
Tell yourself that over and over, and simplify the complex.
