How to do a Snatch Balance to increase your strength and improve your performance in CrossFit WODS.

Set up for a Snatch Balance

  • Stand with heels underneath your hips, legs locked out.
  • Hands wide with a full grip, elbows under the bar
  • Begin with the bar racked on the back of the shoulders, belly tight.

Points of Performance for a Snatch Balance

  • Start the movement by breaking at the hips and knees dipping straight down and dynamically straight back up, opening the hips aggressively.
  • Feet move at the same time from under hips to a squat stance, shoulder width apart.
  • Aggressively push yourself straight down under the bar and catch in a full overhead squat.
  • Recover by driving out of the bottom to a full stand.
