I am looking for some tips on increasing wrist strength for the snatch. I have never really had issues with grip but find the wider grip in snatch kills my wrists.

I find once the wrist starts to twist with the plain of the bar, angeling away from my forarm things get sore rather fast.

Its a flexibility issue. Stretch your wrists before and after your WO. Use wrist wraps if necessary. With time and consistent snatching you wont need them.

I guess here might be the best place to ask. The hand in relation to the forearm in both snatch and clean, how should it be sitting? Where in the hand is the bar?
