Snatch

The Snatch is a continuous movement that the barbell is lifted overhead from the ground. It is a more technical lift. When the barbell is snatched overhead, it is allowed to bend the knees and then stand up. But the arms must be extended and further shoulder pressing is not permitted.

One can choose the split style or the squat style to do the Snatch. When performing the lift the split style provides a larger supporting area to save the lift if the center of gravity deviates. The squat style is simple and the vertical travel of barbell can be shortened in deep squat position. But it provides a smaller supporting area to save the lift if the center of gravity is going forward or backward. Nowadays most weightlifters do the Squat Snatch than the Split Snatch because the squat style effectively increases the results. The Power Snatch is a Snatch when the barbell is caught high in quarter or half squat position. It is usually used in training.
