DB Squat Snatch vs DB Snatch

ARe they the same thing? Main site video only has a demo of DB Snatch. It looks like his squating at the bottom.

You can do a db power snatch, wer you only bend your knees deep enough to help catch db overhead (i.e. the power position), or in the WOD a db squat snatch, you catch db and go down into squat.

Re: DB Squat Snatch vs DB Snatch

Assisted Pull-up question: I am still a puppy as I can only do 2 or 3 unassisted pull-ups. I have access to an assisted pull-up/dip machine. For W.O.D.’s such as today’s, how much weight for assistance should I add. Currently if I use 77.5lbs of assistance I can do 10 consecutive but usually fail around 12 or 13. Not sure if I should be adding enough weight to do 30 consecutive or reduce the weight to complete in 3 or 4 sets.

Honestly - scale the reps on the pull-ups, or do as many as you can normally and sub with say a jumping pull-up. If you don't get used to doing pull-ups and always run to the assistance machine, you won't get better.

My opinion, I'm honestly not a fan of the assistance machine after the pull-up has been achieved.

I'm a newb too. I can crank out about 9 or 10 pull ups ... but, not after doing 21 reps of DB snatches in each hand.

Today - I did the first two pullups un-assisted and then did jumping (starting with my arms totally extended and ending with my chest to the bar) for the other 88 ....

I completely agree with what George said. The problem with using a machine for pull-ups is that it prevents you from learning how to kip or butterfly as it isolates the muscles. If you have a band to help you instead of a machine, I would go with that if you don't like jumping PUs.

Re: DB Squat Snatch vs DB Snatch

when doing the dumbell snatch, the video only shows 1 rep. Once you stand and have your arm straight up, do you bend or squat and put the dumbell back to the floor?
