    Olympic Lifting Reverse Chain Snatch Balance


    Here we see the shrugging part of the Snatch. This is being done to ensure that the first part of the Snatch (when doing the full Snatch) is pulled both from shoulders and hips; it's too easy for the shoulders to fail to fully participate. Therefore this exercise, when done as part of your warmup routine, will help you get every part of your shoulders (and then your upper body) into the Snatch.


    What you can see from my practice here is that the repeated pull with the shrug leads to a good snap in the hips and a nice fast drop, when I don't pull as hard into the shrug I also don't snap as hard and drop as quick. I also realise that there will be next to no shrug when the Snatch is done with a max or close to max weight. The purpose of the practice of the shrug is to get the sequence of mechanics right. Comments are welcomed on this
