Tuesday, September 11

We don’t have snatches in our training for today, but sometimes I see a technique video that I think needs to be shared as soon as possible. This video from Catalyst Athletics on how to make hip contact in the snatch and keep the bar close is something a lot of us need to see.

This is one of the major problems we see across the board and hopefully seeing this explanation in video will help you fix this problem if necessary.

Always think “Up!” We’re never throwing the hips forward in to the bar. And, like he says in the video, there will always be some horizontal movement, but it needs to be minimized. I hope this video helps you see what we’re talking about and makes it easier to put into practice.

(Don’t let the monotone narration distract you from the great points made.)
