Help w/ Snatch and OHS

On the OHS, I know I need to keep my weight back on my heels, but I seem to always come forward onto my toes. I believe I have some achilles flexibility issues.

Going along with this bottom position struggle on OHS, this means I am limited to power snatching only.

I'd love some criticism/helpful cues. Thanks!

Re: Help w/ Snatch and OHS

You get more ankle flexion in your OHS than I do. So I'd suggest that it's the hips that are actually the limiting factor and the ankles are merely trying to make up the difference.

Re: Help w/ Snatch and OHS

Your OHS looks pretty good to me. Maybe a little more weight on the heels but your shoulder stability seems good.

On the snatch it looked like you're not bending your arms enough causing the bar to go away from your body forcing you to jump forward to catch it. Try bending you elbows up and curling your wrists in to keep the bar more vertical.

Need to loosen hips for a better OHS. Feet seem too wide to compensate for lack of hip looseyness.

Re: Help w/ Snatch and OHS

On the snatch, you're hips are rising way too fast and you never get into a good position for the second pull. You should be using your legs to push the floor away in the first pull, and right now, you are NOT doing that. You're simply trying to deadlift the weight. This will not put you in the proper positions.

Thanks everyone. Definitely going to work on my hip mobility.

Keith, I think you are dead on. Thanks for the feedback.
