Snatch work - new PR @ 165#

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHNdX3LnsW8 (WFS)

Here is a video (5:11) of my Snatch work from earlier today (post-WOD). I started the day intending to just work on keeping my form fresh, but felt great and kept pushing the weight higher. I feel I could have gone heavier if I hadn't done so many sets of singles (somewhere around 12-13 total).

Snatch is my weakest lift (hence the low PR weight - I am M/29yo/6'2"/225#), so I am open to any criticism and suggestions. I have pretty thick skin, so feel free to be brutally honest.

My initial thoughts were that my hips were set too low, but all my misses were from setting my hips higher. It seems like when my hips are higher, I am shooting my butt straight up initially. I then have to move a greater distance to reach full hip extension, and the whole process slows me down too much to get under the bar with enough time to position my arms and stabilize. Or maybe I'm just over-analyzing and just missed.

I am also unsure of if I am bringing the weight too far back when I drop into the catch (really evident on the side on shot).

Any feedback if much appreciated. Happy holidays!

Looks good. You look strong in the bottom position. I only have two critiques that stand out immediately.

1. Make sure you are keeping your shoulders active. They look like they get a little soft, even at the lighter 105 wt.

2. Make sure on your initial pull that you are coming to full hip extension. You have somewhat of a muted hip. Opening of the hip will provide more power which = more wt. It will also give you more time to get under the bar.

Thats all I have after a quick look at it.

When the weights get heavier:

1. Hips shoot up faster than the shoulders until the back is nearly horizontal
2. Premature arm bend
3. Feet are pointed too far out in the squat

Re: Snatch work - new PR @ 165#

I really appreciate the input. Do you guys think the best way to really work on the 2 main issues of full hip extension/timing and arm bend would be to work on hang snatches to hammer home the form of the pull above the knees?
