Snatches mimic cleans in that they begin from one of the same three starting positions and employ the same explosive motion of the hips, knees and ankles. However, your grip should be about as wide as your elbows when you hold your arms to the side.
Begin with the same upward motion and shrug, keeping shoulders over the toes. Once the pull with your arms is complete, drop under the bar into a squat and catch the bar overhead slightly toward the back of the head with straight arms. Do not get into habit of swinging the bar away from the body during the pull; keep it as tight to your body as possible.
