Popularized by CrossFit, the classic Olympic snatch is one of the most technically difficult and physically demanding exercises anyone can do with a barbell. It demands total-body strength, high levels of coordination, and flexibility in ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders.

Before you attempt a snatch by yourself, make sure you learn proper form from a qualified coach with specific training in this exercise.
