3 Pos Snatch + Hi Hang Snatch Critique

Just started learning the snatch a few weeks ago with the help of Greg Everett's book and video. Any inputs or observations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: 3 Pos Snatch + Hi Hang Snatch Critique

A couple of things I would tell you as a coach: first, don't move from position to position so fast, pause at each position for a full one-mississippi count. Second, when you pause, stay tight!! You don't stay tight. Also, get more aggressive with the final pull to get under the bar.

Re: 3 Pos Snatch + Hi Hang Snatch Critique

Copy that. I agree, I'm having a hard time using the shrug to move down quicker. I also noticed my feet land about a foot behind the jumping position, and the 2nd pull doesn't move the bar that far behind me. This results in the bar pulling me forward in the land, I think.

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: 3 Pos Snatch + Hi Hang Snatch Critique

When you break the bar off the ground that's the first stop. About 3in off the ground. Your not letting the bar come into your hips, you trying to muscle it from below your hips. Keep your lats tight and back all the way through, allowing the bar to come into your hips.

Stay tight.

I don't have Greg's book but when Greg and I learned the 3-position snatch from Mike Burgener it was one snatch from the hang, one snatch from mid-thigh and one snatch from the floor. So that's three lifts, not one lift with three pauses.

Carl N Cobb you are correct. Trying to get strong, but focusing on movement technique right now until I get that where it needs to be. Thanks to all for the responses, I appreciate the feedback.

Dont worry man that is what I am doing right now too, I just started following The Outlaw Way for the BBG's cause i suck at Oly Lifts.. I can power snatch the weight you missed, but for some reason i havent manned up enough to pull myself under it into a full squat.. Once i get that down ill be happy, today's conditioning work calls for it, so i will see how that goes.

Re: 3 Pos Snatch + Hi Hang Snatch Critique

It looked, to me, like you had plenty of height on the bar to make the lift. I think it was just too far out in front. Try your best to get comfortable holding a heavy piece of steel directly above your head. Once you are used to throwing it up and landing with it where it should be (it may feel like it's slightly behind you) then you'll land it, no problem.

Basically, just man up and tell yourself that you'll make it (because you will).
