Re: Body Weight Snatch

It looks like you are attempting to power snatch that. I'm not sure if that's the case but either way you need to focus on pulling yourself under the bar and not pulling the bar all the way up.

Also you are pulling with your arms too early. They need to stay straight and tight until the bar gets through your hips (third pull). Also I'd like to see your back much tighter and your weight a little further back on your feet on the setup.

Re: Body Weight Snatch

Thank you. And that is what my coach is yelling in the background. Tight back Tight back.

Re: Body Weight Snatch

I'm curious, what else did your coach have to say about that attempt?

Re: Body Weight Snatch

Jeff

Remember that he only saw it live and did not have an opportunity to see it on tape.
But when i was done with that bad lift. He told me that my back was never tight enough on the lift. One of the earlier lifts we worked on getting my weight back a little and sweeping the bar into me. Also in response to your earlier post that was an attempt at a squat snatch.
Thanks again I will post next weeks attempts.

Re: Body Weight Snatch

I would like to see a made lift for comparison.

And yes, he "only" got to see it live, but I assume he has seen you lift before to know your tendencies. That's why I asked what he said, to have an idea of that.

My suggestion would be that you focus on hang snatches for a bit until you are comfortable extending (i.e. standing up) fully, and then pulling yourself under the bar quickly as opposed to jumping up.

Re: Body Weight Snatch

You had the bar too far in front of you. When you crossed the knee and started the sweep back, and begin your acceleration your heel came off the ground way before you hit extension, meaning your center of balance was too far forward: http://new.tinygrab.com/a1cb0332f971...3ae58fc002.png (wfs). From there, your balance was off and you never regained it and that resulted in throwing the bar out in front and chasing: http://new.tinygrab.com/a1cb0332f90c...496e82b625.png (wfs).

This piggy backs on what Jeff said. Biggest fault is that you aren't quite patient enough and don't trust your technique to carry you through, so you try to muscle it and get over-eager which throws you off balance. You're plenty strong enough to stick this weight, just need to back the weight down and dial technique over and over until you feel confident in the groove (mental) and catch (execution).

Re: Body Weight Snatch

Weight is coming forward onto your toes on your first pull.(push your knees back and transfer weight towards heels) You're rushing your transition(2nd pull)and bringing your knees underneath to quickly. (Be patient and stay a bit longer over the bar). And finally, you just need to drop under the bar. You can easily power snatch that weight. Do some hang snatches from blocks and learn to drop right under bar.
