Snatch PRESS (with rubber band)

The main purpose of this exercise is to work out the small muscles of the upper body and strengthen the muscle stabilizers. The main idea is not to lift heavy weight, but work on holding the weight over your head and stabilizethe barbell and body in this position despite the vibrations created by plates hanging on the rubber. 

In this case, two options are possible:

1) press at a very slow pace – this option is perfect for strengthening weak shoulders or when recovering from injuries;

2) press in a more aggressive style when at the time of fixation the plates will be swinging more and the athlete will have to stabilize his position longer. This exercise is most expedient to be applied in the transition and preparationperiod.
