SINGLE ARM ALTERNATING DUMBBELL SNATCH

The dumbbell snatch starts with both heads of the dumbbell on the ground and finishes with the dumbbell directly overhead. At the bottom of the movement, BOTH heads of the dumbbell must touch the ground simultaneously before starting next rep. Athletes must alternate arms FROM THE GROUND after each repetition and may not alternate until a successful rep is achieved.The dumbbell must be lifted overhead in one motion. Bouncing the dumbbell on the ground is not allowed. At the top, the arms, hips, and knees must be fully locked out with the dumbbell clearly over the middle of the athlete’s body when viewed from profile. Once the athlete has reached lockout, the repetition will count. The dumbbell must be brought back to the ground with the same arm that the last successful rep was completed before alternating arms for the next rep. The athlete may choose to do any style of snatch including split style. However, both feet must return and be in line under the athlete’s body while the dumbbell is locked out overhead for the repetition to count. Dumbbell cannot be dropped from overhead (this will be counted as a no rep)

The non-lifting hand and arm may not be in contact with the body during the repetition.

the bar, with the arms fully extended and the feet off the

bar during the kip. The rep is credited when the arms are fully locked out while the athlete is in the support position above the bar with the shoulders over or in front of the bar. Athletes must pass through some portion of a dip-to-lockout over the bar. Only the hands and no other part of the arm may touch the pull-up bar to assist the athlete in completing the rep. Once on top, the hands must stay in contact with the bar, and athletes must maintain support with their arms. Removing the hands and resting while on top of the bar is not allowed.
