Snatch Critique
Hey All, I saw some great word's of wisdom on Pierre's post I was hoping to get a little constructive feedback on my Snatch as well


As you may be able to hear in the background, I do have a coach, but I realize the value of having more than one opinion.

Thank you in advance

The biggest thing I see is that you are slow to pull under. It is my opinion that the pull under phase (some coaches call this the 3rd pull) is the most technical part of the lift. Do exercises such as Snatch Balances, 3 position Snatches (snatch from above the knee, below the knee, and from the ground without resting), Drop Snatches, overhead squats etc. The lift where your coach said, "it doesn't get any better than that" was the one where you pulled under the best. Your second pull (from mid-thigh to full extension) could use some more explosiveness. Other than that it is a bit hard to tell from the camera angle. Keep it up....looks pretty good overall!

I agree with Gabe - I'd like to see more aggressive 2nd and 3rd pulls. That part of the movement needs to be like a bomb going off. In addition to the exerices he lists, try some muscle snatches with some serious weight (you could probably muscle snatch what you were snatching in that video). That will help immensely with the turnover of the 3rd pull.

Your lifts do look excellent overall, though.

Thank's, That help's. I have not been doing Drop Snatches or Snatch balance lately because my shoulder has been funky, but I will ad them in ASAP.
Snatch explosion has been on my mind lately, I think I might been chicken s@#t in the Snatch, I don't have that problem in the Clean (video next week)
Thank's again
