Power Snatch

Why?

The power snatch is a snatch variation that is often used to improve overall snatch performance and/or allow some lifters to compete with limited squat mobility.

By not allowing the lifter to assume a lower catch position, the lifter is forced to pull the barbell higher to allow proper fixation underneath at a higher receiving height. Lifters who lack pulling or finishing strength could benefit from powers snatches.
