    Hello, what are some good assistance exercises for strengthening/protecting the elbows, mostly during the snatch? Bicep curls, tricep barbell overhead push thingies, snatch grip BTN presses? I don't have a specific condition, just want to keep them in good shape for heavier snatches.

    Thanks.

    There are about a thousand bicep exercises to choose from, and nearly as many tricep exercises. It really comes down to personal preference, and what equipment you have available to you.

    For biceps I'm a big fan of very light barbell curls to failure, and for triceps I like dumbbell skull crushers with a hammer grip.

    as part of my accessory work, I like to do tempo ring pull ups and dips as a super set. usually 3-4 sets to failure

    palms facing each other on the rings to start, rotating to chin up, hold at the top, rotate to original position back down (0-3-5 tempo)
    for dips, I just go to failure then hold for 20 seconds at the top of my last rep for each set

    sick bicep/tricep pumps.. (but really its to gain some stability in my lockout. its helps with my overhead stability for snatches and jerks)

    I generally like db hammer curls and light barbell curls for biceps, keep it simple. For triceps, I just started doing dips again, and I like the hammer grip extensions or skull crushers.
