Knee Buckle On Snatch 135#

Okay, how bad is this?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdPMZ...ature=youtu.be

I think I'm landing off balance with my center of gravity way too far forward. And advice on how to catch the snatch more efficiently on the heels?

An then there's this...

I know, I probably should of dumped it ASAP, but I have a hard time thinking clearly when I have weight overhead

The next attempts after this I dumped the weight when I had any sign of catching in an unstable position.

Re: Knee Buckle On Snatch 135#

Believe it or not, those misses both come all the way back to your first pull. Your hips are far too high throughout, so the bar is too far away from you from the start. Then you are pulling it into you hips instead of extending and meeting it with your hips, which is causing you to catch way forward and practically on your toes.

Start with your hips lower and maintain a constant back angle until the bar passes your knees. Then extend your hips much faster while still keeping the bar in close to your body.

Great, this helps a lot. Thanks! I wish today wasn't a rest day, so I could implement this right away.

Also you might want to widen your pulling stance a bit. Might help you get your hips a little lower more easily.

Re: Knee Buckle On Snatch 135#

Try slowing down your first pull. Putting emphasis on slowing the first pull will make it easier to focus on position. Also, the bar needs to accelerate once it passes your knees, if your first pull is fast you can't accelerate for the second.

Lastly, without getting into the jump-shrug vs catapult thing, this is not a position you want to find yourself in while snatching. If you have aspirations to snatch heavier weights, you'll need to learn to pull youself under the bar quickly. If your feet are off the ground this far you won't be able to pull underneath.

Your flexibilty looks good and once you tweak a few things you'll see big gains. Keep it up!

This is a great point. As soon as your feet leave the ground you have lost the ability to apply force to the bar whether to pull the bar up or to pull yourself under the bar. Keep contact with the ground for as long as you can. If you watch really good lifters, in the snatch, clean, and jerk, their feet leave the ground not to jump, but simply to slide out to get into their catch position.

Awesome, thanks for pointing this out. I have a training session tonight, so I'll definitely work on it.
