Hang Power Snatches / Cleans
First off..forgive me. It's been a while since I last posted here. I've been so flat out with a lot of things now. I've still be training pretty hard (as usual).
One thing that I've been doing is my coach has been training me into a jr coaching position for a small club we're starting up. He's always asking me questions about what I'd do if...what is x exercise good for or if an athlete was struggling with y how could we fix that.
Something he asked me the other night has made me think about a few things. He asked the technical advantages of donig 'hang power snatches'. To me I figure that any work from the hang is going to require a lot of speed to get the bar at any reasonable height. So it promotes and encourages how to generate a lot of force.
Power work is about getting under the bar extremely quickly from an above parallel position.
So does that answer the question? It promotes both a quick second pull and very efficent pull of under the bar ?
