The snatch – such a beautiful but treacherous movement. When done correctly it looks so easy, but anyone who tried it knows that it could take a lifetime to master.
Since the same technical mistakes happens over and over I would like to give you a little guide to some errors so you might be able to spot if you are guilty of them and if you are able to remedy them.
Hips rise faster than the shoulders leading to sub optimal power and positions for receiving the Snatch soundly because the weight is on the toes etc.
The key is that the hips and shoulders raise at the same time and that is achieved by really only bending the knees.
The bar travels around the knees leading to a swinging path or to be too much on the athletes toes. Most often a jump forward will be the result. Spotted by analyzing the bar path from the side. The bar should never have a forward horizontal movement from the floor to the hip.
