First snatch critique request
 
This is 84kg, about 95% of my 1RM. Working on keeping my back tight and avoiding early hip raise, and I see I still have some work to do. The last one's probably the best. Thanks in advance!

P.s., the first one is crap, I probably should've omitted it.

Like you said, keep working on controlling that excessive hip rise.

Try to stay flat-footed longer in the pull - think of feeling pressure on your heels until the bar is in your hips. Punch the legs through the ground as you explode the hips open.

Be more active/aggressive in changing directions/pulling under.

Thanks Greg. Some other feedback I got was that I start too far in the hole, that I basically need to start the pull with my hips higher. Do you agree? I've seen some guys start low so I'm not sure if it's a preference thing or something I should really change.

P.S. I love listening to you and Robb every week. If you ever wanted to do an Oly-lifting-specific podcast, you'd have at least one listener.

You don't technically start there - you just do a type of dynamic start. If you find that you can't be consistent in your position/balance when separating the bar from the floor, trying a static start with a higher hip position would help.

Make that two.
