Lindenwood University Distant Coaching Athlete Rachel Schwartz performing a Snatch Press into the Bottom. Rachel has been working with Coach Micela since March on becoming a better Weightlifter. One of the drills that Coach Micela uses to develop timing and strength with the Snatch is the Snatch Press into the Bottom of the Squat. Here Rachel performs the drill acurrately. The athlete takes the bar off the rack and places their feet into their receiving position for the squat. She quickly pushes herself down as she simultaneously pushes up on the bar. The key to this exercises is to maintain an upright torso as the bar moves without hesitation or stopping throughout the entire range of motion.
