Snatch Pulls from blocks Jelle van Gorkom

This video shows Jelle van Gorkom professional BMX rider, Olympian 2012 and runner-up at the BMX World Championships 2015   performing a Snatch Pull from the blocks.

After a crash during racing Jelle wasn’t able to perform an olympic lift or derivative of an olympic lift, such as Power Cleans or Power Snatches and bring the bar onto the shoulders or overhead. We used the Snatch Pull as an exercise to train the hip extension.
