Abstract

THE PURPOSES OF THIS ARTICLE ARE TO DISCUSS THE TECHNIQUE OF THE SNATCH/CLEAN PULLS AND TO ADDRESS THE COACHING POINTS OF PULLING ACTIONS. THE PULL HAS 2 PRIMARY FORMS, THE CLEAN GRIP AND SNATCH GRIP STYLES, WHICH CAN BE FURTHER BROKEN DOWN TO THE PULL AND “HIGH PULL” VERSIONS. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE CLEAN/SNATCH GRIP STYLES, THE BASIC MOVEMENT PATTERNS, ERRORS, AND COACHING POINTS REMAIN SIMILAR. AFTER READING THE ARTICLE, THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROFESSIONAL WILL HAVE FURTHER INFORMATION TO CORRECTLY COACH AND APPLY THE PULL OR HIGH PULL TO A STRENGTH PROGRAM TO ENHANCE AN ATHLETE'S ABILITY TO PRODUCE POWER OR SPEED STRENGTH.
