Amazing "Time Force" curve analysis of KB Snatch
I actually took this clip at the KB Worlds in Miami in Nov, 2007. Vasily Ginko is warming up with a 32kg KB backstage.
A Finnish scientist (?)/ KB enthusiast has done an analysis of his Snatch, plotting the different force as the KB goes up and down and as it rotates around the wrist/forearm.

Here is the paper which explains it.... in Finnish, so it's not much help, but I'd need help even if it was in English!

My "take home" on this is just getting confirmation of what I experience when I snatch a KB as opposed to a DB. The forces on my grip, shoulder, arm are quite different, and the stabilization needed to control the "torque" involved in these forces is what I experience.

Yeah, good vid Tom.
I immediately felt the same thing snatching a kb for the first time and then my calluses ripped!
