Snatch, Part 1, How To, Olympic Weightlifting by


I have been trying olympic snatches with light weights

approx. 120 lbs. for just 2 months.

I notice that a day after the snatch training, my elbows

aches when I put weight on them for 3 days,

why I am i aching. Is it bec when the Weight is
above my head, the way the arms are spread out, it puts weight on opposite
side of the elbow joint, it hurts when you bend it

on the opposite side, its not doing this before I

did snatches.

Note: I could not drop weights on the floor

because I

train in a commercial gym,

pls help, I love snatches.
