Olympic Lift Types: The Snatch


by Blagoy Blagoev


The snatch is performed by lifting the bar from the floor to overhead in one movement and holding it there for two seconds.

The lifter pulls the bar to about chest height and then, in the moment before the bar starts to descend, pulls their body into a squat position under the bar, securing it overhead - arms held straight. The lifter must then stand and wait for the referees' signal, called a "down" signal, to lower the bar. The down signal is usually indicated by the sounding of a horn.
