Snatches can be complicated, and the three things you must remember are:
1. It’s just jumping and landing.
2. Finish the pull – SHOULDERS LEAD, ARMS FOLLOW.
3. Bring your junk yard dog attitude to the gym with you.
Have you ever seen a guard dog of a junk yard in a movie? It’s a nasty dog, one you don’t want to mess around with. It’s attitude is that you are infringing on its space, and it has no plans of letting you in. You have to have that same attitude when it comes to Olympic weightlifting. Snatches are explosive and aggressive, and when you approach the bar, you better be ready to move some weight around. You cannot be a whimp about it. Be aggressive and get it done.
We broke down snatches a couple of months ago – read more here. Do not let snatches intimidate you – if you think about it too much, your mind will get in the way of trusting what your body is able to do. Jump and land (first picture below). Finish the pull (middle picture). Junk yard dog (last picture).
