Halting Snatch Deadlift To Knees

HALTING SNATCH DEADLIFT TO KNEES Learn the Halting Snatch Deadlift To Knees from coach Bob Takano. The starting position described for the Clean High Pull is adequate for this movement with the exception of the grip width. The wider grip width will necessitate a higher hip position and will place a slightly different stress on the lats. The movement is initiated by pushing the floor down with the feet as the weight rises to the knees whereupon the athlete will halt for 2 seconds to feel the movement. The center of pressure moving from the ball of the feet to the heel should be internalized. This movement should overcome the tendency to shoot the hips up at the beginning of the snatch.
