Snatch beginner
 
Hi, I'm totally a beginner with weightlifting and I'm trying to learn the snatch. Below there's a video, if someone could give me some feedback it would be nice.
Thanks.

Keep your head and eyes up during the pull.

Biggest issue is the squat/overhead position. You really need to work on flexibility and sitting into a more upright squat.

Thanks Greg for your suggestions.

What can I do to improve my flexibility for the overhead squat position?

Cheers
