Movement Standards

This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell loaded to the starting weight. In the Snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders. This can be a muscle snatch, a power snatch, a squat snatch or a split snatch. A clean and jerk is not permitted.

Additional Notes

Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video above for full details. Each rep will be counted once the athlete clearly shows control of the barbell overhead. The athlete must be responsible for loading their own barbell to the appropriate loads during the workout. The same barbell must be used for the entire workout and they may not receive assistance when changing the loads. Using additional pre-loaded barbells is not permitted.


To complete this workout you will need:

  • One barbell
  • Collars
  • Plates to load to the appropriate weights for your gender and age group

Video Submission Standards

Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so that the loads can be clearly seen. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch will need to be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so that it is clear that the barbell is locked out overhead on each rep.
