Why We Created Snatch Shorts
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 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. Others have tried to fix the issue by shoving foam padding or scraps of carpet down their compression shorts!
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. 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. You don’t have to worry about changing so you can go run some 400’s after you finish your OLY work. Our shorts have been tried and tested by elite athletes from both disciplines, including Dmitry Klokov, Jon North, Andrea Ager, Tommy Hackenbruck, and Lukas Hogberg. Grab yourself a pair of Snatch Shorts and PR WITHOUT THE PAIN!
