Muscle Squat SNATCH + OverHead SQUAT

It is a power variation of SNATCH. Performed without a jump and without a distinctive power position. A slight detachment of the heels from the platform is allowed. The main task in this exercise is the development of the strength component of the movement, so basically it is usually planned in the preparation period. Correct performance implies a long powerful pull at the end of which arms are involved in the strength work actively, while an important technical detail is holding of the barbell as close to the body as possible.

After reaching the maximum point of the trunk extension, the athlete should continue interaction with the barbell, but at the same time drop under the barbell as quickly as possible to go into the full squat. Exercises can also be of a technical nature for testing of the athlete-barbell interaction during the final acceleration, work on the position in the squat and balance training. Adding an overhead squat, it’s a perfect way to have a proper warm-up, and also calibrate balance and balance in position with the bar above your head. The recommended period: preparatory. Load: up to 60-70%, 2-4 sets, 1-3 reps per exercise.
