Snatch Overhead Stability In The Bottom

The most reliable position to establish stability in the snatch is in the bottom. There’s no need to bounce out to recover like in the clean, so don’t be in a hurry to stand up before you’re stable.

Unless you unquestionably receive the bar perfectly, settle in and stabilize at least briefly before standing. Magnifying instability by unnecessarily rushing the recovery is a stupid way to miss a lift.
