Static Start

A static start is a method of beginning a pull from the floor (such as in the snatch or clean) in which the athlete sets and holds the starting position at least momentarily before actually lifting the bar from the floor.
It’s recommended that beginning lifters use a static start until they’ve achieved a reasonable level of technical consistency.
