Muscle Snatch – Video

The muscle snatch trains the turnover of the movement.

Just as the name implies, our aim is to muscle the bar overhead. Triple extension takes place, but there is no “re-dip” beneath the bar (resulting in a power snatch).

Inside this movement today we can focus on the bar path, keeping close to the body, along with the turnover speed and precision to finish overhead.

Building speed beneath the bar, and finding out aggressiveness in lockout.
