Slow Motion Snatch






The slow motion snatch is a basic technique exercise for the snatch to help the lifter better adjust and feel positions and balance throughout the lift.
 
 
Execution
 
Perform a snatch at a very slow tempo, maintaining continuous tension against the bar. Begin with the feet in the receiving stance because they will remain planted on the floor. A typical error is to flip the elbows suddenly under the bar in the turnover—continue pulling against the bar and control the entire turnover.
 
 
Purpose
