I lifted recently in my first competition, and videos are below. I'd appreciate any criticism. I realize that I need to work on catching snatches deeper. Thanks in advance!

very strong...the technique in the snatch needs of cause a little bit work, but the clean and jerk is quite solid in my opinion.
how much do you squat, front and back?

I hit a pr 425 back squat single this past weekend, and 335 is my best front squat (in pounds, obviously). Thanks, Nathan

I second that your strong.

Is there any reason you cant get low on the snatch?

Also I can't make out if you wearing lifting shoes, they look regular sneakers.

No, I can get into a fairly deep snatch position but I tend to power snatch heavier weights. I'm currently on Greg's 12 week positional cycle to try to combat this bad habit. I'm wearing the Rogue Do-Wins. Thanks.
