Snatch Grip Deadlift Off A Box

Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Snatch grip deadlifts are excellent for building strength and explosiveness with particular emphasis on the posterior chain. Standing on the box further decreases your leverages and really targets the glutes.

Technique Tips

The safety and technique principles of snatch grip deadlifting are the same as the regular barbell deadlift except your hands are placed in a wider position at the start. This position combined with the use of a box will require you to use a lighter weight that you would otherwise. As with all deadlifts try and ensure your hips and shoulders come up at the same time and also focus on using your glutes to pull the weight from the floor.
