Target Muscles: Glutes

Right Arm Dumbbell Snatch Overview

This exercise targets the glutes and some other parts of the body that include the biceps, triceps, quads, abs, and upper and lower back. The equipment needed to perform this exercise is dumbbells.

As this workout targets different muscles of your body, it has a beneficial effect on strengthening endurance in your upper and lower body.

How to Do It?

  • Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and a dumbbell in your right hand.
  • Keeping your elbow close to your side, raise the dumbbell up until your arm is fully extended overhead.
  • From here, explosively extend your hips and knees as you pull the weight up in front of your body.
  • As the dumbbell reaches chest level, flip your wrist so that your palm is facing forward and catch the weight at the top of the movement.
  • Lower the weight back down to the starting position and repeat for 8-10 reps before switching sides.

Right Arm Dumbbell Snatch Tips

  • Push your hips back and bend your knees while holding the dumbbell.
  • Keep your chest up, and look forward.
  • Push your hips forward, with your shoulders and chest moving up and back.
  • Keep the dumbbells close to your body.
  • When you pull the dumbbell to your shoulder level, keep your legs straight with your glutes squeezed.
  • Then, you can pull the dumbbell above your head and then lower it down to ground level.
