SNATCH from BLOCKS
"SNATCH FROM BLOCKS is often performed from above or below the knee level, depending on the goals and tasks of the training session. When performing this exercise, it is necessary to apply a much greater starting force and developpower during acceleration phase, since the barbell's path to the power position is shortened. This is a great way to work out power in the PULL and speed in dropping under the barbell. Also, SNATCH FROM BLOCKS with light weightcan be an excellent alternative when it is necessary to unload your legs and back, since these body parts are loaded less when working with a short range."
