Post snatch loads and WOD time to comments.
This is a solid front rack position, used at the top of a clean, front squat, push press, push jerk, and split jerk. Theoretically, he could let go of the bar, put his arms straight out, do a front squat, and the bar would stay put…and, I only say theoretically because he has every color of bumpers on the bar, and you wouldn’t let go of a heavy load like that! But in theory, he could.
Notice the position of the bar, sitting on his shoulders, elbows are out of the way and slightly in front of the bar, and from here, he can drive his body down under the bar with full force.
Getting to this position takes great flexibility. If you struggle getting into this position, talk to your coach today about some mobility exercises you can do daily that will help you get a strong front rack position. If you have a favorite mobility WOD for shoulders/chest, post links to comments!!!
