The Dumbbell Snatch


The setup.

The 3rd pull.


The landing.


Full extension.

It is easy to get so wrapped up in barbell work that we forget dumbbells.  While the loading will always be a little less, dumbbells offer their own inherent challenges.  Instability in more planes than a barbell, for example, as well as the ability to work only one side.  This is also a real plus if an athlete has an injured shoulder or arm.  Besides, single dumbbell work is just plain fun.  The dumbbell snatch is no exception.
