Snatch Form Comparison

Hey guys, me again. Putting what I learned at last weekend's Wilkes Seminar by working up to a heavy single in the snatch today.

Wound up working up to 185 pretty quickly, but was only able to top out there as I missed 195 five times because I was being stupid about getting down underneath the bar.

I had video of the misses but wound up deleting them all after I threw a little temper tantrum after miss #5.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CTJ0vzm4XY

Video goes 180x1 (1/20), 185x1 (2/6)

In terms of what I see, I think these look pretty good. Watching them in slow motion I feel like I look like I'm shooting my hips, but I don't see that at full speed.

Any comments are appreciated.

I can relate.


On the first lift you let the bar pull you forward. Watch the feet and you'll see you get onto your toes about when the bar gets to knee height. You also put a big loop into the bar path, pushing the bar forward with your thighs.

Re: Snatch Form Comparison

Not terrible, but you need to keep your back a lot more arched throughout the entire pull. That ought to fix some of the other errors you've got (like the bar not staying close enough and shooting your hips).

Re: Snatch Form Comparison

Thanks guys...

Lincoln I see exactly what you're talking about in the first lift.

Brian was the comment about the bar not being close enough for the first lift or for both of them?

I should amend my comment in the first post about "these" looking pretty good. The one from 1/20 is pretty ugly, today's was better.

Also noticed that I'm throwing my head back when I finish the pull which I know I'm not supposed to really be doing, but I wasn't cuing that today (long straight arms was pretty much my sole focus) and didn't even know I was doing it until I watched the video a few times.

Not close enough for both of them. Again, if you really get that thoracic extension going you'll have no problem keeping it within your area of balance.

Re: Snatch Form Comparison

yep. bar needs to move back towards you as you go from the floor to the knee, not doing it for sure in the first video, pretty sure it's not in the second also.
