Yep!  You read that right.  I took time to create a Snatch Technique breakdown video and used our very own, Rosanne Allen, against one of the world’s best!  Okay…they are two different athletes and both champions in their age and weight categories, but both athletes are competitors that I respect and I figured it would be interesting to see the two side by side.

Different Athletes


Rosanne and Lydia are built very different from one another but the base technical issue that we see sometimes transitioning the bar up to the hip can be found in all lifters.  The other technical issue this video breaks down is related hitching during the pull.


I hope you all enjoy and be sure to leave comments below telling me what you think.
