Breaking down the Muscle Snatch with Jen Sinkler


The Muscle snatch is probably my FAVORITE Olympic Lift variation for both myself and my athletes. It’s a VERY simple exercise to teach and perfect and when using a clean grip (as we do in the video) we can keep the shoulders safe throughout the movement.

The key to the muscle snatch is that is forces FULL extension…especially when using a clean grip (as the pull is that much longer) and it gets us out of bad habits where we try to pull our body under the bar before our pull is complete.

Try these out either from a hang or from the floor….I guarantee you will love them!
