Dumbbell

Description

How to do dumbbell power snatch:

 

- Using an overhand grip, grab a dumbbell in one hand and stand with the feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.

- Descend your hips to the floor until your knees are bent at 90-degrees and the dumbbell is resting on the floor.

- Quickly pull the dumbbell toward the ceiling while simultaneously extending your knees and hips and raising your body on the balls of your feet.

- Keep the dumbbell close to your body

- As the dumbbell reaches its highest point, quickly rotate your elbow under the weight and extend your arm.

- The dumbbell will rest over the top of your shoulder with the palm facing away from your body.

 

Some tips:

 

- Keep the dumbbell as close to your body as possible throughout the entire movement.

- The movement starts with your hips and glutes. Thrust them forward to help raise the dumbbell above your head.

- Avoid swinging the dumbbell away from the body.
