“Snatch Ladder”

In this event, the athlete works his or her way through a series of stations with progressively heavier barbells. The athlete will begin outside the first station. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” he or she will have 50 seconds to move to the platform and complete one snatch. There is a 10-second “reset” time, so the athlete rotates every minute.
The entire snatch must be completed before the 50 seconds are up. The athlete remains at that station until the call of “rotate,” at which point he or she will move to the next station. If the athlete does not successfully snatch the barbell within the 50 seconds, he or she does not advance to the next platform.
If the athlete fails a snatch, he or she has a choice. The athlete is allowed to attempt the lift again in the remaining time.
