Abstract

The Snatch is a complex lift to which many biomechanical concepts apply, such as power, work, and friction. These concepts will be discussed, demonstrating why this is one of the most challenging lifts for an athlete to master. The Olympic Snatch will be compared to the Power Snatch. Although similar in execution, the type of snatch performed should be determined by the training needs for athletes. A breakdown of each phase will be provided, and phase differences between the lifts analyzed. Recommendations will be given in order to help individuals determine which lift best fits their performance needs.
