200-lbs Snatch

This is a 15-lbs PR (previous best was about 3 years ago...LOL).

Thoughts, critiques, criticisms?

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

Nice lift. Good bar path and timing. Just stay tighter in the recieving position. Anytime you can PR by 15lbs. its a good day.

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

Nice work, there's plenty more in there. Be more aggressive pulling yourself under the bar. You're doing what I do and just kind of sneaking under it. More aggression! Gotta be another 10lbs PR in there real soon.

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

Like Chris said, if you improve your speed getting under the bar, you easily have another 10-20.
Don't rush to stand up, make sure you are steadied before doing so, I think this is why you stumbled a touch coming up

Great job!

This. Without a doubt. More aggression = much higher weight. I see 225 in your reach if you can get under it faster, and pull harder.

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

Though the speed isn't amazingly fast it's obviously sufficient as your had primary control of the movement the entire time.

Gret job on the PR and really solid back and form followed by an easy recovery.

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

All,

Thanks for the pointers. I am completely self-coached so I tend to get stuck fairly regularly. I am just starting up an Oly-specific cycle based primarily around Catalyst Athletics' "Classic" program. A few questions if I may:

- I already have lots of snatch balances and OHS programmed in, are there any other drills or technique variations that I can use to be more solid at the bottom?

- Turnover speed: What are some good drills to improve this? Muscle Snatches at 60-75%? Scarecrow Snatches?

- Any good drills to improve my speed pulling under the bar? I assume that this is different than merely arm-turnover speed.

Thanks again guys!

- Alex

Re: 200-lbs Snatch

For me I just need to make a conscious effort to get under the bar and turn it over aggressively. I tend to put all my focus into the pull and then shut down and just hope I can sneak under it... Gotta make it happen at every step.
