Hang Snatch – work up to a heavy single
5 rounds for time…
Hang Snatch Vid Demo
The Hang Snatch starts with the barbell in the hang position (if not specifically stated, the hang is with the barbell somewhere between the knees and mid-thigh, though it can be anywhere from high to just off the floor)
and received overhead, arms locked out and in a parallel or below parallel squat. Beginning the lifts from the hang position places training focus on the third pull (pulling yourself into a squat below the barbell). Because of its focus on technique and its simplicity compared to a lift from the floor, the hang snatch is important in buiding confidence in new lifters.
