8.29.17 – DB Snatch

The Dumbbell Snatch
1) Hamstrings & Hips: Momentum generated from using your hamstrings and extending your hips will move the dumbbell upwards-don’t bend your arm too early!
2) Using shoulders, arms, and lower back is more strenuous than legs-just like rowing start with your legs and let the rest of the movers guide the weight to the receiving position.
3) Keep it close! Let your arm bend and your elbow drive upward with the dumbbell as close to your body as possible-imagine zipping a zipper-and snap straight into the overhead position.
