Olympic Lifting Exercise Demo - How To Do The Snatch

Olympic Lifting - The Snatch

The snatch is one of the two exercises seen in Olympic weightlifting.

It's an explosive exercise where you lift the bar from the floor to overhead in one fluid motion.

The explosive nature and range of motion need to perform the snatch safely and correctly mean it's not suited for everyone. However there are many variations of the lift so there's an option for everyone.

Setting Up Correctly
