Snatch with a narrow grip. Training in the USSR

Спортстудия силового тренинга

In the 70 and 80 — years, the snatch exercise was popular with a narrow grip. Its main use for the development of flexibility and good fixation. For young beginners, this exercise is useful, but for older athletes, I think it is optional. With the classic snatch 140 kg, my result in the snatch narrow grip was 90 kg. Exercise was performed 1-2 reps in 5-6 sets. Often the attempts were unsuccessful. This exercise should not be included in the competition period of preparation.
