Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Muscle Snatch

  1. Start with a shoulder-width stance, knees slightly bent, and a barbell on the floor in front of you.
  2. Grip the barbell with an overhand grip, hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
  3. Engage your core, keep your chest up, and lift the bar from the floor using your legs and hips.
  4. As the barbell passes your knees, explosively extend your hips and shrug your shoulders to propel the bar upward.
  5. Pull the barbell overhead while rotating your wrists and elbows under the bar, fully extending your arms at the top.
  6. Catch the barbell overhead with your arms fully extended, maintaining a stable and balanced stance.
  7. Lower the barbell back to the starting position in a controlled manner, ready for the next repetition.
  8. Remember to breathe in before initiating the lift and exhale as you extend the bar overhead.
