Coaching Tips: Make sure you use the hook grip for the hang snatches. If you can’t go right from the hang snatches into the overhead squat, drop after the 6th rep and then pick-up to finish / do your 7th (last) rep so you can go right into the overhead squats. If you squat snatch your last hang power snatch it will count as one overhead squat! If mobility is an issue on the overhead squat, scale to front squats.
