Today we're working on a higher skill movement: the Hang Power Snatch.
Hang Power Snatches are an amazing movement. It's an athletic and dynamic movement that incorporates a TON of muscle groups.
To do a good hang power snatch,
- Engage your back and core muscles to stay in a great position
- Use your glutes to get the weight moving
- Pull the weight close to your body with your lats
- Shrug and pull the bar with your traps and biceps
- and finally catch the bar in a squat and stand it up!
One of the many reasons we do movements like this is because of the large amount of muscle groups involved.
Alternatively, movements like a Russian kettlebell swing or sumo deadlift high pull or trap bar deadlift would be a great substitution for a snatch.
Remember, heavy is relative and at Pittsburgh FIT, we build FORM FIRST!
