Glenn Pendlay put together three excellent videos on the snatch, one of the lifts that comprise Olympic weightlifting (the other is the clean and jerk). The snatch is a smooth pull from the floor to overhead.
Here are three videos explaining the lift, and how to coach it/execute it:
It's interesting to watch the videos even if you are only a fan of weightlifting, not a participant. You'll get a much better understanding of the technical nature of the lift, and what is involved in pulling something clean off the floor to overhead without racking on the shoulders first.
