3 MIN VIDEO! If you are trying to improve your Snatch, proper bar/body contact is absolutely 100% crucial. If, when you Snatch, you fail to accomplish to this vital piece, this video explains why and how to make that happen. Another quick, but great video on Hip Contact (and an article in case you’re truly intrigued and want your snatch to be top notch)  – Personally, in the first few years of snatching, my bar would always make contact with my mid/upper thighs. When I finally began bringing the bar into the sweet spot (the hips), everything changed for the better. Making any bar/leg contact should be everyones first goal. However, if you’re making contact with thighs, and not the hips, set a new goal for yourself and starting hitting those hips! I say it all the time because it’s very true when it comes to the Snatch:
“when you do it right, it feels light!”
