Any critique on my form here would be much appreciated.

You'll have to change the video settings to brighten it up. Just click on this little tab under "now playing" and then open "enhancements" then click on "video settings."

Thanks

Your hips rise too fast relative to your shoulders. Early arm bend as well.

You keep the bar in tight, very good. Good speed, nice to see squat snatches.

Thanks, Lincoln. I noticed the hip thing too, but I didn't notice the arm bend.

As your hips rise, your shoulders remain stationary and your lower back bows. Also I can capture by stop action an example of early arm bend, but I can't reproduce it here for you from MS Media Player

BTW, anyone knowledgeable:

Is the hip rising faster than the shoulder an example of not engaging the Posterior Chain?

Yes. What is happening is that knee extends much faster than the the hip.

Here you can see the early arm bend.

The arms have started to bend before the hips and knees have finished extending.

Good double knee bend and the finish of the second pull is nice and vertical. Very good position and speed into the bottom of the overhead squat.

I used Blaze Media Pro to do the screen grabs and Microsoft Digital Image Pro to fix the exposure and crop the images.

Great coaching tips Lincoln, learned a lot from those still frames.

Wouldn't Neal benefit from hitting snatches on a block? He seems to have no choice but to extend the knee first with his low start from the floor.
