Snatch advice, Oly lift too

By far I know, my 1RM snatch is at 70kg.

But my Isabel I can snatch at 60kg for 30reps (exclude the snatch squat).

My question is, how can I improve on snatch.. I mean 60kg wasn't easy, but 30reps in 5mins cap was alright for me.

On other note, I had a huge problem with my Power Cleans.
The one and only problem, my technique to receive the bar.
I have a problem with receiving the bar by racking. I have this fear that it will hit my throat and my clavicle/scapula.

HELP PLS!

Snatch - post video. Do full squat snatches more often than resorting to power snatches.

Power clean receiving - well you should get more comfortable in the receiving position, maybe more front squats, lighter weight, faster elbow turnover. The bar needs to rest on your shoulders, not catch too low it hits your clavical. I have slammed my throat before, and it does suck, but getting under heavy cleans isnt suppossed to be easy.

Post videos is best rather than have words try and describe what is happenning, but no biggie.

The best would be to post a video like previously stated to really see whats going on. I've been working alot lately on snatch balance and it has helped me out alot main thing for me was i wasn't popping out my chest as much as possible and believe it or not it help a good amount, I was surprised.

On power cleans when i started focusing on catching it with elbows as high as possible and bringing them under as fast as i can. If you do it correctly you'll catch it landing on your shoulders absorbing the bar a lil will help also.

Cues.

Keep the bar close to the body.

Stay on the heels in the 1st and 2nd pull.

Keep the bar close to your body as you pull under after the 2nd pull into the 3rd pull.
