Snatch Form check

I went through the warm-up then 5x3 @95 to work on strict technique and the fact that I didnt have bumpers bc I had to use a hotel gym.

Any advice good and bad would be appreciated where to work on.

Re: Snatch Form check

It would probably be best to start with a progression like snatch deadlift --> snatch pull --> power snatch --> snatch.

The overhead squat portion is okay but everything before then needs a lot of work. In short, you have no arch whatsoever when you start. Back is rounded. Hips are too high. Then the bar travels upward and comes very far away from the legs, and it travels very slowly. This will work at light weights but highly unlikely that you could get to 60 kilos with that sort of technique.

Try to emulate this starting position: (wfs)
