I know they aren't great ... early arm bend, not enough dip, pressed out 115, etc. But if there's anything I missed that you can point out, feel free! Thanks!

Anthony,
Dude - like you're a machine! Charlie is right though, get down into that squat. Although its extremely impressive that you are 1 arm power snatching 115lbs!!! I'd be lucky to get that done with 75lbs. Oh by the way I tried to return your email but I doubt it worked, the first one ended up going to the CrossFit admin addy and the second time it just didn't seem to be working.

So I'm very interested in helping you out! Shout me an email at pjr.auge@gmail.com.

Haha, thanks guys. I was expecting to hear worse!

Pierre, I did get your email! Lots of great advice and we definitely appreciate it. Sorry for not letting you know it arrived, but things have been hectic! I do have more questions, but I need to sort out a timeline first. I'll keep you posted!

on DB snatches are you supposed to drop down to a compleate squat or just get down below the weight?
By the way nice lift

Joaquin,
That depends on how high you can pull the weight before you have to get under it. With a heavy enough dumbbell you have to drop into a full squat.

Anthony,
When you get deeper in the squat, get your chest up as high as you can. It would probably be best to get psyched up first and stop the rocking; really take a moment to get yourself set. It was happening pretty fast but it looked like the rocking was making you start from your toes. That said, you're a beast.

John, thanks for pointing that out! The dip before the pull helps activate the stretch reflex, but I'll try to pay more attention to staying flat.

Actually, I've been told to dip before I pull on deadlifts, but I can never seem to get the hang of it on deads for some strange reason ... ?

Anthony,
who told you that? I've seen your deadlifts, and unless Louis Simmons told you that I would suggest you stick to what you are doing. Riggid Body all the way through with a dead starting position. Like a crane, unless your working explosion with lighter loads and even then I wouldn't say dip before you lift.

Start nice and low and grind through it, like in your videos.

Eric Cressey said it to me directly, but I've read it in many other (respected) places as well. I've tried it, but I can never find my groove ... hard to teach an old dog new tricks I guess!
