The Barbell Snatch

The barbell snatch rounds out the traditional Olympic lifts as well as the Clinical Management of the Fitness Athlete series. Similarly to the barbell clean, the snatch begins with the barbell on the ground. It is then broken into a few different pull phases, a catch, and recovery.


The first pull is basically a deadlift, but with a significantly wider grip. Like the clean, once the bar has passed the knees, the second pull is initiated, which is the lat sweep.


Again, as contact is made with the hips, the third pull begins, with the bar being propelled up into a high pull position, looking to hit that triple extension position.


The catch is where the snatch and clean differ entirely. With the clean, the barbell is caught in a front rack power position with the bar resting across the shoulders and collar. With the snatch, the high pull continues above the head and shoulders, finishing in a fully locked out overhead position. Like the clean, in order to catch the bar in the overhead position, you want to quickly pull yourself under the barbell at the moment when the bar is weightless for a split second. Then, the lift is completed by performing an overhead squat.


The snatch is not a strong movement for me. If you saw my overhead squat a few weeks back, it is not my strongest lift. So not only do I struggle with getting the bar overhead, but I also suck at the overhead squat.


As always, what do you guys see? Any glaring faults you can identify?
