Movements Weightlifting Dumbbell Snatch

Overview & Demo

See "snatch". Using one hand, lift a dumbbell from the ground to an overhead, locked out position in one continuous movement. The heavier the weight, the lower the receiving position must be. At very demanding weights, a full "overhead squat" receiving position must be used. The off hand can be used for balance.
