Pictured is the hook grip which should always be used for Olympic lifting. The thumb is wrapped around the bar first then the fingers go over the thumb. This is a more secure grip because the thumb contains the largest connection in the hand to the rest of the fascia (an interconnected layer of fibrous tissue that covers all the muscles in the body). The more secure grip means when you explosively extend your hips the maximum amount of energy is transferred into to the bar, driving it upwards. If your grip slips energy will be lost. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link: massive hip extension power can only be applied to produce impressive numbers on the clean & snatch if the athlete also has the necessary grip strength.
