Snatch critique (slo-mo and bar path)
 
Ideally next time I will get a vid directly from the side. What I see is a little early hip rise and that I should keep the bar closer to my chest when getting under it. Looking forward to any other critique you guys can give me. Thanks!

This is 84, max is 91 (haven't tried more than 84 since I hit 91 a month ago though.)

I couldn't see anything majorly wrong except that you're in a parking lot. Buts thats badass and besides the point. Nice squat depth.

Does your lower back fatigue after a lifting session? You could try pushing your knees out to the sides more, it would keep the bar closer to your body. Maybe that way you're torso would be more upright in your first pull emphasizing the use of your legs instead of low back when you break contact with the ground.

That's the best feedback I've gotten since the last vid I posted of me lifting on plywood and somebody kept calling it a "2x4", haha

I usually don't have too much lower back fatigue (probably would if I could lift more), but I have been actively trying to push my knees out since taking this vid. Thanks for the feedback!
