Greg Thanks for posting early. In the snatch balance lift are you catching the bar in a deep snatch position or catching it above parallel and riding it down below parallel? Thanks Schon
Greg Everett 2 | 2010-12-24
Schon- The goal is to elevate the bar as little as possible and drive yourself down into elbow lockout. If this is done perfectly (it never is), you would be receiving at right around parallel. In any case, you will receive it higher than the bottom and sit all the way in; work on getting closer to the bottom without falling out from under the bar.
