A snatch balance is simply popping the bar off the shoulder just to unload it and drop under it as fast as possible in an attempt to catch it at arms length in the bottom of a squat. The difference between heaving and just regular snatch balance is the aggressiveness. For a true snatch balance you want to pull yourself under the bar with the same speed you would a snatch.
