Making Contact in the Snatch! This is an absolute benefit, otherwise the IWF would not of introduced the rule to allow it many years ago. Now, there is good contact and bad contact and the goal of the video and this post is to go through how and why its a benefit.
Now you do not have to make contact in the Snatch, there are plenty of world class lifters who don’t but for the everyday lifter or someone who is learning I personally believe its a great place to start.
Couple of tips:
- Focus on the contact being light at first
- Be aggressive when using your elbows (AFTER the contact and leg drive)
- USE your legs!
