A great total body exercise that requires significant amount of power to lift the weight from the ground to full arm extension overhead in one continuous movement. The Power Snatch develops coordination, flexibility, power, speed and strength in the posterior chain while incorporating the shoulders, triceps and core in lifting the weight overhead.
There are a fair number of traps in this exercise. Places where you could get caught and Madoff'd. Do not jerk the weight from floor; arise steadily then accelerate. The clean-and-jerk is multi-movement lift. In the clean portion of the performance, the barbell is lifted from floor to shoulders. In the jerk half, the barbell is driven from shoulders to arms length overhead. The lift is complete when feet are in line and bar is under control. Got it, as that was our Cliff Notes version.
The video was developed for Nu Akalegbore -a Young male who has excelled in power lifting while working on his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering. He is also working at Fitness First as a Personal Trainer.
This video was developed to assist him in obtaining sponsorships and donations. The movie was compiled using mostly images using a point and shoot camera, and videos recorded using flip phones. Any recommendations or suggestions to better my skills and the quality of the movie will be appreciated. Thank you
