2 Ways To Improve YOUR Snatch

Are you new to the 'Snatch?'

I find beginners struggle at 2 main points of the snatch, these are;

  1. Barbell Awareness

  2. Early Elbow Bend

Barbell Awareness:

The key takeaway;

- The banded drill forces the athlete to keep the barbell close to there body, as the band will pull them away

- Closer bar = better position

Early Elbow Bend

The key takeaway;

- Bending the elbows too early reduces force produced & efficiency of the movement

- By 'Squeezing the pinkies' you put yourself in a better position & will make it much more difficult to bend the elbows earlier.
