Snatch Form Critique Please

Hi Folks,

Not been too confident on my squat snatch. I've recently posted a video on YouTube (family safe and does work) with me doing 5 full squat snatches with a 20kg bar.

Any tips for improvement? Any of the three pulls in particular that I need to focus on (I'd say 3rd pull?). Any constructive feedback is much appreciated. I'll be doing the CrossFit oly lifting cert in July where I can hopefully come away a better lifter!

Video is at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHSWYHHaHuc

Thanks

Right off the bat I would say that you need to finish your 1st pull, and probably work on your set up a little, although, its hard to see without the bar on the ground. Great ankle and hip flexibility though.

Move your grip out, hop back not forward and push out on the bar rather then pushing up when you catch the bar overhead. I hope this helps.
