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.

Workout:

5 Rounds

DB Snatch 5xL/5xR (use a good heavy weight and really jump it up)

10 Hip Extensions

20 Double Unders
