In our second video by Doug Seamans he shows us common mistakes by beginners. Doug goes over hand insertion and wrist position on cleans and snatches. This video also covers the pitfalls of the “death grip”. This will help those with dangerous and painful bent wrists on cleans and snatches.
Do not "death grip" the handle. Open the hand during the flip to insert it into the handle. Keep the wrist straight. The handle should be resting down low on the hand, on the heal of the hand, this should allow you to wiggle your fingers and relax your hands. The handle should not be resting in the middle of the hand causing the wrist to bend back.
