How To Keep The Bar Close In The Snatch ?
1. Assign tension properly; the easiest way to do this is to pull our lats down and towards the glutes. Imagine that we are bending the bar around the shins as we work to push the platform away from us with the middle of the foot.
2. Ensure that the momentum of the bar works up and back towards the body as the plates break from the floor.
3. Bring our shoulders as far in advance of the bar as possible, as the bar is lifted above the knee.
4. Be mindful of where our weight resides on the foot throughout the pull. Our weight starts over the middle of the foot, works back towards the ankle as the bar passes the knee and returns to the middle of the foot as the power position develops.
