Re: Snatch fail @ 185

It seems to me that your back is too flat from the start. While your hips and shoulders start to rise at the same time, you hit the top of your legs and your back is still very flat. This is probably causing you to swing the bar out as you try to achieve an upright torso.

So...at the start, drop your hips and get your chest up. Keep your chest up as long as possible and be sure your hips and shoulders rise together.

Watch Dimas here wfs skip to about 1:15 to see the lift.

If you pause at 1:23 just as he initiates the pull you can see very clearly what I'm talking about.

have fun!
