Maximize The Stability & Security of Your Snatch Overhead Position


A great article by Greg Everett on the Catalyst Athletics site about each component of the overhead position during the snatch.


https://www.catalystathletics.com/article/2042/Maximize-The-Stability-Security-of-Your-Snatch-Overhead-Pos/


As we continue to drill Snatch Complexes on Tuesday's this cycle, the overhead position is critical to successfully completing these lifts. Add this article to your reading list to dial in your overhead position!


Greg Everett states:

" There are a few simple things the snatch overhead position needs to accomplish:
  • Stability (wrists, elbows and shoulders)

  • Comfort (i.e. it’s painless)

  • Balance (of the bar over the body and of the body-bar complex as a whole)

Keep in mind that each individual lifter will have certain anatomical peculiarities that will influence exactly what the overhead position looks like—but this will nearly invariably involve very minor differences among lifters, none of which actually diverge from the recommendations that follow. In other words, the criteria described will all still be met—these criteria aren’t precise measurements and angles, but positions that can be achieved by anyone, excepting of course serious mobility restrictions.
