The Muscle Snatch

ByCrossFit July 5, 2020

The muscle snatch is a skill-transfer exercise. It is used primarily to build capacity and positional awareness for the first and second pulls of the snatch. Note that the legs do not flex after the pull is complete. Instead, they remain straight as the bar continues overhead.

This is such a great movement variation for coaches teaching newer clients the Olympic Lifts, especially for weaker and/or less coordinated athletes staying with the muscle variations for some time does wonders for their motor control growth and self confidence.
