This is what it looks like in a lift: From the ground, the athlete is generating upward momentum on the barbell, FINISH, and elbows will follow into this position. There’s a change of direction point where the barbell will float for split second, and the athlete’s job is to aggressively pull their body DOWN to receive the barbell. This athlete: he’s pulling his body DOWN.
A snatch is nothing more than a jump and a land. Weightlifting is a sport of positions and physics, actions and reactions. The Burgener Warm Up is fundamental in focusing on and reinforcing proper positions. Do it EVERY SINGLE DAY, and your lifts will improve. GUARANTEED.
