This exercise is badass. To hoist weight from the ground and throw it up and overhead, like the Hang Power Snatch requires? That takes strength, coordination, and fierce determination-all of which you’re at the gym to improve on, right?
But perhaps the biggest benefit of adding this move to your routine has to do with the power it yields. You’ve heard of plyometrics-and this move just might be king of that category of exercise.
You’ll also strengthen your entire body-not just your arms and shoulders-while shoring up your agility, balance, and overall fitness, so other exercises will suddenly feel way easier. (Win-win!)
This total-body exercise loved by CrossFitters is impressive—and crazy effective for building strength. – Caitlin Carlson.
