Strength: Snatch Complex

8 Sets:
Pausing Snatch Deadlift + Low Hang Snatch + Overhead Squat
(Click HERE for Video)

Pausing Snatch Grip Deadlift – Pause for a full 2 seconds just below knee level. Focusing on pulling the knees back and out of the way as the bar breaks from the ground, we are aiming for vertical shins when the bar is at the pausing position.

Low Hang Snatch – In this complex, the heart is the low hang snatch. A low hang snatch is where the athlete brings the bar as close to the ground as we can, without actually touching the ground. Hold the bar in that position for a full second before completing the snatch
