General And Specifics

  • the fitness exercise is for advanced learners only
  • the grip-width comes from the Olympic discipline snatching
  • additionally, the range of motion is bigger
  • it requires the target muscles even more, but do not use too heavy weight to prevent injuries

Starting Position

  • place the barbell on the ground
  • the feet are below it and the shins have contact with the barbell
  • bend your knees and squat
  • tilt the upper body forward so that you can grasp the barbell in double shoulder width and stretched out arms (over hand grip)
  • push out you bottom and arch the back a little
  • the chest points forward, not down
  • your shoulders are above the barbell
  • look ahead

Correct Execution

  • brace your entire body
  • stretch out your legs through pressure on the heels and lift the barbell with strength
  • guide the barbell close past the shins up to the knees and to the thighs by stretching your hip
  • push the hip forward and bring the upper body up
  • do not roll in the upper back, otherwise reduce the weight
  • do the motion the other way round and lower the barbell
  • shortly rest it on the ground, then go on to the next repetition
