Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Dumbbell Snatch

  1. Start in a standing position with feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in one hand between your legs.
  2. Bend your knees slightly and hinge at the hips to lower the dumbbell towards the floor, keeping your back flat.
  3. Explosively extend your hips, knees, and ankles while pulling the dumbbell up in a straight line.
  4. As the dumbbell reaches chest level, quickly drop underneath it and catch it overhead with a locked arm.
  5. Stand up fully with the dumbbell overhead and control the descent to return to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of reps and then switch arms.
