The single arm snatch is probably one of my favorite exercises. It pulls together the entire body in a way that few other exercises do. It’s about power and control through the core and hips and a great way to engage the scapular (shoulder blade) while lifting weight over head. Here is a fun way to increase the weight on your single arm snatch as you go. A little bit of plyometrics and a lot of gusto will get you through the dumbbell train. Have fun and start with your lightest weight first.

Set up dumbbells lightest first and work your way up about 5 increments of 5 lbs. (i.e. 10/10, 15/15, 20/20, 25/25, 30/30)
