What’s the difference between a snatch and a squat snatch? All vids i’ve watched they look the same.
A snatch can be just getting the bar from the ground to overhead in one movement without a re-bending of the arms but squat snatch implies that the bar has to be caught with the athlete in a full squat whereas in a power snatch you can land with slightly bend knees or in a quarter squat position. If something just says snatch then generally it means caught in a full squat, typically it will say “power” or something else in front of snatch if it is required.
Let me get this straight. Pardon the redundancy.
Loosely, a snatch is getting the bar overhead w/out re-bending your arms. In most instances ‘snatch’ implies squat snatch. But if I just snatch the bar i.e. power snatch w/ little or no bending of knees to depth is it okay? Squat snatch means squat snatch. Power means power. And snatch means just get it up there.
Reason I ask, is this is a weak area. Overhead squats specifically. I can snatch around 125#, but can’t squat w’out crashing. Today I used just the bar, power snatched it, then squat. Arms were still a little wobbly even at this low weight.
I watched the Turkish Get UP vid and read more in the journal. Started today to work on those to improve shoulders.
The good news. I got my first muscle up today. Busted out 4, jumped the rest. 2nd set, 3 full, jumped 4. 3rd set got all 5 muscle ups. Of course I had to let go of rings between each one and they were sloppy but still excited. Total time was approx. 21:xx min. Don’t have time in front of me right now.
Thanks for all advice.
