Re: Advice on Snatch

There's a tendancy to shoot the hips on the snatch, too. That puts a big loop in the bar path on the second pull. When you don't loop the bar as much -- such as on the last lift -- the bar ends up in a better spot overhead instead of out front.

Re: Advice on Snatch

i would say the opposite. u need to get the hips all the way through but control the bar with ur lats to keep it close. i'm on my iphone looking at the vidoe so its not super clear but on the last two, it doesnt seem like ur getting full extension and getting up on ur toes, getting the hips through, etc so the bar is lending in front.

James, I'm talking about the first pull. When the bar comes off the ground his hips rise faster than his shoulders (aka shooting the hips.) This problem on the first pull makes it difficult to open the hips to full extension on the second pull.

Re: Advice on Snatch

Especially on the first two your not leaning back on your heels enough to center the bar overhead in the squat. Watch how you roll forward on your toes then lean back.
On the last two the weight is too heavy for your body to have a chance to center yourself. Tight core, squeeze the lats, and lean back on heels as you reach the bottom of your squat. You can get 85

Re: Advice on Snatch

Since you asked, here are my two cents.

1) Your second attempt at 85K is much better than your first. The path of the bar was much straighter, becuase you shot your hips much less on the 2nd attempt. In both however you recieved the weight forward of the frontal plane, and had no chance to save it.

2) It looks like you are starting your second pull too soon. You are just past the thigh when you are pulling (you want to be at the pocket). A wider grip on the bar will get the weight to your pocket when you want to innitiate that 2nd pull.

Keep it up,
