Complex moves like the snatch and clean take some instruction and attention to form. These exercises are great, but, when done wrong can lead to injury. A nice way to learn complicated movements is to start with light dumbbells. Don’t jump right in to the advanced motions using the straight barbell with heavy weight and get it wrong. Instead, Chris suggest’s using two dumbbells. Doing so allows greater margin for error especially if they are light. When your brain and body are primed for the technique then move on to the barbell and start adding weight.
