The Snatch is such a complex lift, but it's over so fast. In order to snatch, you need to be coordinated in all the intricacies of the movement, and you need to be flexible, strong, and powerful. You also need to have the speed and power to execute the move quickly. Because all these elements must be in place, sometimes it's best to break the snatch down into components and practice each part separately. We did this today with snatch pulls and power snatches (working from the ground up), as well as snatch balances and hang snatches (working on the finish). Some of this work was done for heavy loads while some of it was done for speed. Putting it all together, you'll be much more confident in executing the full snatch.
