Young Athletes and Olympic Snatch
Jumping into the second step
The second step in our process is very simple. In order to teach the correct methods of activation at the hips, ask your athletes to jump again. This time with the bar in their hands, in a building block method cue the athlete to the start position and then cue with the simple word “jump”. Using this simple switch word, the athlete will begin to extend the hips, within moments of beginning hip extension a slight re-bend of the knees will occur.
