Both feet must come into contact with the bar at the same time, inside the hands.

Scaling (75/45)

At the start of the movement the athlete must have their arms and legs fully extended.

Knees must pass the top of the hips with the heels passing behind the back at the bottom.

Hang Snatch

The athlete must first deadlift the bar off the ground to the hip, at that point the bar may not pass below the knee.

The barbell must then come to a full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body. This is not a ground-to-overhead in any way. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead is a “no rep.” A hang power snatch, hang muscle snatch, hang split snatch, or a hang squat snatch is permitted, so long as all requirements are met.
