Finish The Snatch Turnover With Maximal Stability

One of the most important elements of the snatch turnover to understand is that the motion is finalized with a vertical push up into the bar.

If the arms are straight before the bar reaches the correct position overhead, it becomes a swing or a pull back into position, which creates horizontal momentum that’s difficult to control.

The goal is to maintain maximal proximity of the bar and body and finalize the lift with the opposing vertical forces of the bar pushing you straight down into the squat and you pushing the bar straight up into the overhead position.

The turnover begins with an active pull of the arms to accelerate the body downward and preserve the bar’s upward speed, then transitions into a turn over of the arms to move the body from above to below the bar, then finishes with an aggressive vertical punch up into the bar.
