Re: clean catching position


Pressing snatch balance for thoracic flexibility is a wonderful movement
can also be done in split leg position many of my players have difficulty
at the same phase as you have stated due to lack of flexibility, injury
and the such, it is a constant coaching point, elbows up, chest high, a
good front squat will be of assistance to you as well by positioning the
elbows where you need them for the bar to sit up behind the anterior
delt, also as my weightlifting coach, Luke Borreginne once said to me, “
whatever you can front squat for 3 you will never have a problem with
standing up with a clean” so it is a confidence thing as well, cheers,
