Useful Technique for High Rep Snatching: Palm Catching

My boy, Anthony C, reminded me of a specific technique used to help preserve the hands during high rep snatch training. This is a technique utilized in the descent portion of the kettlebell snatch. This technique will eliminate the friction from the palm of your hand and your calluses, saving you from nasty tears and blisters. I consciously used the technique tonight, and it helped a great deal.

Check out this video from Jordan Vezina, RKC and marine. He did an excellent job of explaining the logic behind the technique as well as providing the 'how to.' Good luck!
