Snatch PR - 185lbs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEJTX2C8Ozg (WFS)

Hips rise to fast and I'm soft in the bottom, but other than that I could use some more guidance on how to continue making progress.

Re: Snatch PR - 185lbs

A few things:
Widen your grip.
Watch out for the early arm bend - keep the arms long.
Don't jump forward - keep the bar path coming back.
Get some weightlifting shoes.

Strong work though.

Re: Snatch PR - 185lbs

The grip width looks ok to me...maybe a tad wider would be perfect. One of the things I learned at the O-Cert was regarding grip and I used to be way way way too wide..

Should be able to put your arms out to the side and have your forearms hang strait down at 90 degrees...- thats your width. We want the bar 8-12" above the head.

Re: Snatch PR - 185lbs

David, really strong work so far. W/ some dedicated work, 200lbs is right around the corner.

First, what Linc said.

Second, specific drills (all links are to wfs WL vids at pmenu):
1. Widen that grip and get your OHS correct. Get some WL shoes and stop lifting in vibrams.
2. Once your OHS is set, get good at snatch balances. Work up to you snatch max and a little over if you can.
3. Work on 2 and 3 position snatches starting from the hang.
4. Lowering your start to shoulders in line w/ the bar and bar over base of toes should help avoid that early arm bend and jump forward.

Also, you need to eliminate your hang time after you hit your jump. Once the bar creases your abdomen, you need to be getting underneath it.

Good luck.

Re: Snatch PR - 185lbs

Your set up position can be adjusted too.
Lower your hips and tighten your back. Your back is relaxed from the very beginning...

Re: Snatch PR - 185lbs

David,
If you have to loose the bar backward, will your grip width allow you to do it?

I'm learning the lifts as well. Currently working on upping my Overhead Squat. Nice work so far.

Agreed

also:

1) set your hips lower at the start
2) get your back locked down and tight
3) get your eyes looking comfortably at about 25 degrees up.
