HANG POWER SNATCH SKILL WORK

Prep:
3 x 3 Standing Snatch High Pull + 3 Hang Hi-Pull (1st set w/ bar, 2nd & 3rd sets with light weight)

  • Standing High Pull = start fully standing with the bar in your hands, and pull the elbows up as high as possible
  • Hang High Pull = drop to a high hang position, and then drive the feet into the floor, using the hips to drive the bar into the air while pulling your elbows up as high as possible
  • Focus on pulling the elbows as high as possible for both movements – if need be, close your eyes to really concentrate on pulling the elbows high (try not to focus on the bar – it does not matter how high the bar comes at this point, only that your elbows are high and pointing towards the ceiling)

Work:
EMOM for 10min: 5 Hang Power Snatch (75/53lbs, or 60% of max Snatch, whichever is lighter)

  • Focus for every rep should be keeping the bar close by (1) driving the feet into the floor to extend straight up into the air, and (2) pulling the elbows as high as possible
