225 lb Snatch PR, PR Total

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybceNX5RTgE

Lifted in pounds for the first time in quite a while today, needless to say it went very well.

Lifts on video go...

Snatch: 190, 205, 215 (F), 215, 225 (F, F), 225
Clean and Jerk: 265, 285 (F), 285

Other than throwing my head back which I know I'm doing (and am actively working to eliminate) any feedback is appreciated.

Re: 225 lb Snatch PR, PR Total

Well, you're way ahead of me in Olympic lifting, so take this with a grain of salt.

You're aggressive in your movements, which is great. In your clean the bar is bouncing off your thighs and getting away from your body slightly. This is you:

Back is almost perpendicular to the ground, only slightly leaning back.

Leaning back a little more - maybe only a few inches more than you. Increasing the backward lean is going to 1) avoid early arm bend, 2) direct bar path up vertically, and 3) limit the bar traveling away from you. More power will be directed into the vertical lift instead of wasted in horizontal movement.

Keep up the good work.

Re: 225 lb Snatch PR, PR Total

In both lifts, you're letting the bar get away from you after the contact. In the snatch, that's why you're missing behind, because you are looping the bar around you and not being able to stop the momentum. The ones you make are not as bad, so the horizontal momentum is not as great.

Work on pulling UP and not necessarily banging it off your hips/thighs.

Nothing to add, just wanted to agree.
