Coaching Tips: The first round of hang power snatches should be unbroken for just about everybody. Hook grip will be key here. Some people will benefit from doing a more narrow grip because it will tax the hands less. Be sure to throw the wall balls from the bottom of the ball and not the sides. Holding it on the sides requires more energy, means that the ball is farther from the target, and you can’t ‘flip’ your wrists to get it even higher with less energy.
