Snatch Tech.

Fairly new into CF and oly lifts. I have decided to work a bit on my technique and I need a few pointers.

As you can tell I'm pretty tall (6'7) and do have some problems with correct position.
I noticed that I don't get a triple ext and having some problems keeping weight on the heels.

What do you suggest I start focusing on? I am working on ohs, Sn DL at the moment.

First warm up with a few singles on 95lbs and then a few attempts on 135lb.

Thanks in advance,

K

I would do snatch pulls off the floor. Focus on the bar getting into your pockets (it should touch your hips every time and lift your shirt up). Also, think "shoulders back!" get them behind the bar! Hope this helps.

Re: Snatch Tech.

From floor to knee, your butt rises before your shoulders. So when you are doing your Sn DL, you must keep back angle, and have butt (hip) rise along with shoulders. This is accomplished by pulling your knees back (again, while not raising your butt).

The most glaring issue is you're not pulling the bar "in" to your pockets. At 95lb, you can get away with it. Doing Hang Snatches from the knee can help this.

Since your depth and mobility in the bottom look good, I would do more 3 position snatches, instead of just overheads squats.

Re: Snatch Tech.

You're sneaking under the bar rather than finishing the pull properly. You nearly skip the second pull entirely.
