Snatch in slo-mo help

So aside from not getting a full extension and not catching it all the way down in the bottom position, anything else I could be working on? This is about 82% of my 1RM for a double.....

TIA!

I don't think I'm qualified to critique quite yet. Sorry.

But it may seem that you have the same issue the told me to fix which was that my hips were rising to fast.

Also, they might tell you to tilt your chin up a bit higher. I know every time I'm looking down, I miss the lift.

Re: Snatch in slo-mo help

(equally not qualified to critique, but here ya go)

what I saw:

1) Push those knees out at the bottom (they cave in a little).
2) It appeared that you had too much backwards momentum on the bar in the 1st rep. Work to really make sure the bar is going up and not arc'ing around. (said another way, pull your body down and under, but don't go too far.)

After reading your thread, as long as they don't tell me to go with hang snatches I'm alright I think.

Thanks, I'll try to work on those hips and chin.

Thanks Brian, I noticed my knees buckling also. I kind of thought that the bar was getting a bit out there but didn't know for sure.

Re: Snatch in slo-mo help

Here's my rather newb take as well:

1. I think you could start with your hips a touch higher which is why it looked like your hips started to rise first.

2. You cut your second pull short in an effort to get under the bar. This caused the bar to loop out away from you at the top and ultimately to receive it too far behind.

3. Yes the knees looked to cave a bit. Work on hip flexibility and pushing those knees out.

Agree mostly with what Matt said. However, the other big thing is that you're banging the bar with your hips. Drive UP and finish the extension... the hips WILL come forward, but they're not meant to drive that bar. The loop won't be as exaggerated and will actually come DOWN on you instead of BACK.

Another thing... get a little more upright at the bottom and look forward (not down).

If you need work on speed under the bar and finishing your second pull, you should work in some hang snatches and drop snatches (snatch balances)

This could also be a function of getting the glutes to activate.

Thanks Matt, my knees do cave a bit because my leg strength is not the best. I have been squating a lot, and it's gotten a lot better but I'm one of the rare guys who can clean a heavy weight and catch it in the hole, but not front squat it up.

Thanks Jeremy, that is something I am working hard on actually. Under the stress I just have the natural reaction to look down for some reason.

Thanks Veronica, I will do the hangs, just was making fun of that other thread going on right now. I do snatch balances about once every 2-3 weeks and they have helped a LOT in getting under the bar.
