The Snatch Shorts fill a desperate need in the Olympic weightlifting and CrossFit communities. For too long, many lifters have had to suffer through Snatch because of the severe pain that can occur when the bar strikes the tip of the pubic bone during the transition portion of the lift. Up until now, nothing has existed to address this common issue. Many times, lifters will choose to incorrectly bounce the bar off of their quadriceps in order to avoid the painful bar strike in the pubic region. Other lifters become timid when the weight becomes heavy because of the inevitable pain they know they are about to experience.
You cannot expect to PR your snatch if you have ANY reservations as you walk up to the bar! Enter- Snatch Shorts.
Our shorts have been designed and fine-tuned by avid Olympic lifters to protect your pubic region. The flexible pad maintains a low-profile to ensure maximum mobility while offering maximum protection. Snatch Shorts will add to a lifter’s confidence because he/she will no longer have any reservations or fear. Snatch Shorts are also great for coaches to use with less experienced lifters when trying to teach the proper bar path because it provides an aiming point for the athlete at the lift’s transition. These shorts can also serve as your regular compression shorts for any other exercises you might have to complete later in your workout, which is an important feature for all of our CrossFitters out there. Next time you have to snatch, grab yourself a pair of Snatch Shorts and PR WITHOUT THE PAIN!
