The Dumbell Power Snatch is also very similar to the Dumbell Snatch – the only difference is that instead of dropping into the Dumbell Overhead Squat position, the athlete only needs to drop part way to catch the dumbells. CrossFit Seminar Staff member Julie Foucher demonstrates this movement for us.
