Re: Snatch session

Good movement throughout. Your lifts at 225 and 245 look like the depth was close - probably the camera angle.

255 is your best lift here. Good depth is obvious, and you didn't dance around after receiving the weight.

I wish I had a snatch in the 200 range. Good work!

There is no such thing as proper depth for a lift in Weightlifting. It just behooves you to catch as low as possible but that being said, there are some who are just around parallel that win competitions.

I'm not going to touch upon the Hang Squat Snatch ala Regionals because, well, it was stupid in the first place.

Like you say, his squat depth is adequate for the given weight; higher squat at lighter weight, deeper squat at heavier weight. This is a sign of a lifter who knows what he's doing. For him inadequate depth in the earlier lifts is not a fault, because he's deep when he needs to be. For someone who doesn't squat deep enough at lighter weights and heavier weights, it would be a fault, and likely cause them to miss heavier lifts. Not so with Matt.

Re: Snatch session

The thing I'm most unhappy with is it looks like I'm jumping forward on nearly every lift. Can't tell if its the camera angle or whether I'm actually jumping forward. Got the advice to widen my starting stance to be able to catch deeper in a squat, like y'all are talking about. Heading to Vegas this weekend, so no lifting probably, but I'll post something next weekend. Hoping for 270+

Re: Snatch session

You are bumping the bar forward on every lift. As the bar gets heavier, you ended up missing up the attempt before last.

I don't think it's a matter of your starting or landing stance. Yes, the feet can pop or slide out on the catch but I don't think that's the issue.

Play around with play/pause and you'll see you really cover the bar with your shoulders as it comes off the floor. However, past the knee and you are still forward as you get to the power position.

Where you should be at the power position, your torso is inclined forward so as the hips come through, the bar gets pushed horizontally too much.

So a bit more focus on being upright off the floor with the chest up.

And maybe muscle snatches to focus on keeping the bar close from the knee. It's a good drill never the less but shoulders too far over the bar and not getting back to the power position and bumping the bar is probably the bigger issue.

Need the bar to go up, not out.
