As a strength-building exercise, snatch requires a person to lift the barbell from the ground to overhead in one continuous motion, without any jerks.

The four main styles of snatch used are: squat snatch (or full snatch), split snatch, power snatch, and muscle snatch. Squat snatch and split snatch are the most common styles used in competition while power snatch and muscle snatch are mostly used for training purposes.

Social media users were impressed by his commitment and expressed their excitement in the comments section.

However, weight lifting exercises like snatch should only be done under expert guidance. Poor technique can make it harder, and even make the body prone to injury. So, it is important to know about the right technique.
