How to Barbell Snatch High Pull

Starting Position

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes slightly pointed outward.

2. Hold a barbell with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, palms facing down.

3. Bend your knees slightly, keeping your back straight and your core tight.

Proper Form

1. Drive the barbell upward by powerfully extending your hips, knees, and ankles.

2. As the barbell reaches chest level, shrug your shoulders and pull your elbows upward.

3. Keep your arms straight and pull the barbell as high as possible, keeping your torso upright.

4. Allow the barbell to drop to the starting position, and then repeat.

Breathing Technique

1. Take a deep breath before you begin each repetition.

2. Breathe out as you extend your hips, knees, and ankles to drive the barbell upward.

3. Breathe in as you pull the barbell up and shrug your shoulders.

4. Exhale as you lower the barbell to the starting position.


1. Ensure that your back is straight and your core is tight throughout the movement.

2. Avoid using your arms to pull the barbell; the power should come from your lower body.

3. Keep your elbows pointed outward and your wrists straight throughout the movement.

4. Do not allow your knees to cave inward as you extend your hips, knees, and ankles.
