Muscle Snatch (Low hang Muscle snatch 5 x 3 @ ascendings)

The muscle snatch is an excellent training tool to increase control of the turnaround in the snatch as well as maintaining tension in the upper body as the athlete finishes their extension.

This exercise is often poorly done and should be taught as a snatch progression and not a separate movement. This means that the elbows will NEVER drop down and finish with a press. Our goal is to train the pull and power transference by maintaining tension through the core (hips, back, abs and upper back). For a fantastic explanation (leaving out any unnecessary enthusiasm) about the muscle snatch, watch this video:
