How to: Snatch
- • Start with your feet directly under your hips, your hands wide on the barbell so that if you were standing, the barbell should rest in the crease of your hips. Your shoulders slightly in front of the barbell, this is your starting position. • Brace your core and ensure you maintain a neutral spine as you begin to move your hips and barbell simultaneously. • Extend your hips rapidly, shrug your shoulders, and pull the bar up and under with the arms to receive it in in the bottom of an overhead squat. • Stand up so that your knees, arms and hips are at full extension. • You should feel tension in your traps, shoulders and quads.
