You can't snatch if you can't overhead squat, because a snatch is a lift with a full squat. That's all I meant. I also say in various places that you should still be learning the snatch as a lift in whatever way you can (in the case of someone who can't get into an overhead squat yet, this would be a power snatch, for example).

Also, it's not a matter of how strong you are in the OHS, it's a matter of being mobile enough to get into the position.
