Hey everyone. First time poster here, but been a follower/lurker for awhile. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to take a peak and give me any advice on my technique for my snatch. I'd like to make some gains in the load but I want to make sure I'm hitting the lift correctly first before reenforcing any bad mechanics. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Looks relatively good.

Try to go to the bottom. I'm guilty of this at times when I find I am tiring out.

The bar is getting too far away from you in the second pull, i.e. you're swinging it up into position. Probably the reason you can't squat/get deeper under the bar, you have to stop it from going backward. Once you pop the hips, use the arms to keep the bar close and get under it. I second the "getting into the bottom position" comment!!

Hmm, as you start bringing the bar back towards your hips, I think you are allowing the weight in you feet to shift towards the balls of your feet. Had to see it again to watch.

At least I think I'm seeing that.
