Good morning/afternoon WIT TRAIN Jenny Tong here! Today I'll be running you through the Stable Components of the Snatch. A hugely technical movement, and so we must nail the full list of components before we start lifting heavy!
Work on this with an empty barbell or a PVC pipe and only begin to add weight when you are comfortable and confident in each of the 6 positions. Hope this helps!
The 6 positions
Position 1: 'Start Position '
Position 2: 'End of the First Pull'
Position 3 : 'Mid Thigh Position'
Postion 4 : 'Maximal Extension'
Position 5 : 'Receiving Position'
Position 6 : 'Finish Position
