Hey man, Your technique looks really good. Only thing I would say to do is squat and make sure to get stronger.

vincent,

Not bad at all. I would make sure you pullunder without leaaning too far forward. You have a slight forward jump that has to be eliminated.

I think, in your case, giving yourself the idea of pulling your hips down to the squat position and trying to stay more upright in the torso will do the trick. You should get those heels down quickly.

Good luck.

Coach McCauley

Re: Snatch check

Would the best way to fix this be to just go light, focusing on the things you said above? Or is there a specific variation of the snatch that would correct my issues?

Vincent,

If I had a lifter doing that I would use either a hi-hang or hi-block snatches(right at the hip crease) light, with the torso vertical and finish from there. I would emphasize getting the heels down and keeping the torso as upright as you can and keep good form.

Look at my vids. on youtube under Don McCauley and also see the use of mini-platforms(set up on edge w/only toes off) in correcting a lot of problems resulting from getting too far forward on the feet. See if just doing the hi-hangs or block work will work for you first.

Good luck.

Coach McCauley

Re: Snatch check

It looks like you are throwing your hips into the bar causing the jump forward. Think about pulling the bar into the hips then extending to keep the weight over the heels better and get the bar to come back not forward.

Don's double knee bend video is a great one to practice going through the motion of from the knees to the power position before extension.

Re: Snatch check

Thanks, these exercises all sound good. I'll try the hi hang ones and the wedge under heel one and post a video tomorrow.

Re: Snatch check

I would play with not looking down when you catch. Some great athletes can do that but it tends to screw with your pull under and catch at heavier weights. You may be one of the fortunate who can get away with it.

Re: Snatch check

Looks really good Vincent.
As some of the others have said - you're first movement has your hips coming up a tiny bit. Might be worth focussing on building speed off the floor (i.e., more controlled and a little slower, focussing on an upright torso until the bar passes your knees), because at the moment you are very fast off the ground. The idea is to accelerate the bar the whole way.

All the best mate.

Re: Snatch check

I don't know why I always look down in the hole, but I'll focus looking straight next time. I do tend to be fast from the floor especially near my PR.

Here's me trying out Coach McCauley exercises http://youtu.be/YuaE0tTXOrc (WFS)
