- Stand with barbell with very wide overhand grip. Bend knees
and hips so barbell touches upper-thigh; shoulders over bar with
back arched. Arms are straight with elbows pointed along bar.
- Jump upward extending body. Shrug shoulders and pull barbell
upward with arms, allowing elbows to pull up to sides, keeping
them over bar as long as possible. Aggressively pull body under
bar. Catch bar at arm's length before knees bend lower than 90°.
As soon as barbell is caught on locked out arms in partial squat
position, stand up with barbell overhead immediately so thighs
ride no lower than parallel to floor.
- Bend knees slightly and lower barbell to mid-thigh position.
- Scapula & Clavicle
- Spine (Thoracic, Lumbar)
- The Power Snatch is one coordinated, continuous movement
executed with speed. The grip should be wide enough to allow
for partial squat with bar at arms length overhead. Hook
grip is used by advanced lifters to maintain grip during
snatch. Also see:
