Find Your Snatch Grip Width 

There are quite a few complex methods of determining snatch grip width, and I’ll argue that none is worth the time or effort. Any method that relies on measurements of the upper body is essentially pointless.

The 2 points that actually matter are first, ensuring the bar actually clears your head when overhead, and second, where the bar contacts your body in the pull.

The length of your arms is irrelevant except in its relationship to the length of your trunk, which is why measuring the arms and/or shoulders is a waste of time.
