Snatch Overview

The snatch is a full-body Olympic weightlifting exercise that entails lifting a barbell from the ground to overhead in one explosive movement, enhancing strength, power, and coordination.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Snatch

  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, barbell on the ground over the middle of your feet.
  2. Grip the barbell with a wide, overhand grip, arms just outside of knees.
  3. Lower hips with chest up and back straight, looking forward.
  4. Begin the lift by driving through your heels, extending your knees and hips.
  5. As the bar passes your knees, explosively extend your hips and pull the bar upwards with your arms.
  6. Shrug your shoulders and drop under the bar, extending arms overhead.
  7. Catch the bar in a full squat position, stabilize, then stand up to finish the lift.

Pro Tips for Snatch

  • Maintain a straight back throughout the lift to avoid injury.
  • Focus on an explosive hip extension to generate power.
  • Keep the barbell close to your body during the pull.
  • Practice the movement with lighter weights to perfect form before increasing load.
  • Engage your core to stabilize the lift, especially during the overhead catch.
