This power snatch is really a "ground to overhead anyhow." The key point is the range of motion between the start and end points. For a barbell loaded with full sized plates, the bottom is when the plates touch the ground. For a barbell loaded with smaller plates, the bottom is when the barbell passes fully below the knee cap. The overhead position is when knees and hips are fully extended, arms are locked out overhead and the bar is over or behind the heels. Make sure to come to full extension on every rep.

Required Equipment

  • Jump rope
  • Barbell (configured for 45 lbs/ 20 kg)
