The Snatch is probably the most difficult skill we practice in CrossFit class. This movement comes from the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and it is the bonafide most efficient way to bring a barbell from the ground to overhead in one move. Today we broke the Snatch down into components to help us work on the various phases of the lift: the Snatch Pull to practice bringing the bar off the ground, the Snatch Balance to practice receiving the bar in an overhead squat, and the Hang Power Snatch to work on the crucial part in the middle where you actually bring the bar from below your waist to over your head.
