Distracting the joint enables better positioning.

Today’s barbell complex is a test of skill and strength and will be scaled based on your limiting factor.  If you can’t handle the prescribed load for the hang power snatch, but have no problem deadlifting and overhead squatting, you will scale accordingly.  Ideally, a complex will flow where the end of one movement begins the start of the next, ie: the top of the last deadlift will be the start of the first hang power snatch, etc.  This will largely depend on how well you can hold onto the bar.  It is extremely advantageous in a workout where there is a lot of force being transfered from our grip to the bar to use the hook grip.  Revisit this post for more on this topic.
