Not bad, but you lose any arch in the low back right away.

Re: snatch, any help appreciated

Hips are waaaayyyyy too low at the start. This would explain why your low back rounds off at the start... you are fighting basic anatomy to get the bar past your knees. I suspect that this contributes to an early jump as well.

I also suspect that you miss snatches at the catch a lot... bar seems to never end up in the same place??

Check out Starting Strength's model for pulling off of the floor.... if you are in Houston, as your profile states, go to CrossFit The Woodlands.... I forget the name of the owner, but he has a good handle on coaching this.

Re: snatch, any help appreciated

William, not bad overall.

Overall most of your basic technique is sound. You are a little slow getting underneath the bar. Try doing some tall snatches, muscles snatches, and snatch balances w/ a decent amount of weight.

As mentioned before, you need to work on your start. When you go you totally lose your shape before the weight comes off of the ground. I would recommend starting just a tick higher with the hips. Shoulders directly over the bar, bar over the base off the toes.

I definitely do not recommend the SS model for pulling from the floor. Everett and Rippetoe have debated this topic on this board and elsewhere. I tend to side w/ Everett, and the first pull needs to position one optimally for the second pull.

Thanks for the replies. I'm just starting the catalyst athletics WODs and working on things. I just want to make sure I'm doing OK before getting too far along.

Nice start position, nice pull, not a bad lift. you do need to set your back a bit tighter, and keep it set throughout the pull. You look like you have quite a bit of rounding throughout the back as you come off the ground.

i agree with glenn pendlay. you look good at the start....remember its not where the bar is at the start it matters where your position is when the bar leaves the ground! other than the back rounding at the beginning i think you look pretty darn good!
