Snatch PR - Form critique

Hi!

Just got off from a 3-4 week period where I only trained snatches from boxes to fix my second pull a bit and to get the bar closer. Tried a full snatch the other day and hit PR

Is there something in particular I should think about? (The angle isn't the best maybe)

Snatch(full speed) WSF

Snatch(25% speed) WSF

Thanks!

Move your feet out wider when you land so you can drop your hips down instead of having to send them back.

Re: Snatch PR - Form critique

looks pretty good but a video from the side would be a lot more helpful.

Re: Snatch PR - Form critique

actually from an angle like that is fine.

Everything looks pretty good, looking at it again I'd say jump the feet out, like I mentioned earlier, and keep your head up.

^^^^Agreed!!! Get those feet out to the side to make room for your hips/butt.

Otherwise, without a side view, it's difficult to say, but it looked good!!

Yes that angle is fine. I personally think you can see a lot more with the lifts with a view from the side.

Re: Snatch PR - Form critique

Thanks for your comments. I'll try to get the stance a bit wider when I catch the bar, it's just that I happen to catch it quite high on the video.


I'll think about it and I will take a video from a side-view and post again so you can see the bar path.

Thanks!

Re: Snatch PR - Form critique

Agree with the feet. As you start to get heavier with the weight, it will be harder for you to hold on to heavier weights overhead since the compensation, which you are doing, is to dive forward with the chest. It is also a slower turnover. Moving the feet out helps you pull yourself down quicker since your feet are off the floor ever so slightly for a very short time.
Up until then, though, looks good.

Nice snatch. Lot more there, you didn't get near the bottom position to make that catch! A wider foot position as you are catching will probably make it more comfortable to get low when you get enough weight on the bar to need too.

Re: Snatch PR - Form critique

So the generall consensus seems to be that I would need to widen the stance on the catch :P

Is there any specific exercise I could do to make it better, maybe snatch balance or should I just keep snatching and just think about it when I'm doing it?

Thanks for all the comments! This helps me a lot because I don't have any trainer around and have to teach myself..
