Snatch Technique

This was a 132kg PR from a couple weeks ago. Appreciate any feedback. I often think that maybe my pull is a bit too vertical off the floor?

Your elbows are a little soft overhead but that's still a pretty solid lift.

The pull off of the floor looks like it could come back a little more but it's a tough angle to really get an accurate read on that. Although you do stay over the bar really well all the way up and push the bar into your hips.

On the 2nd Pull, it looks like you bump the bar out just a bit. If you look at your arms on the turnover, it looks like they don't really bend much. Try to make that bar path more vertical with the elbows UP and OUT as you pull under. I understand this is a PR and technique isn't going to be flawless so this is still a very good lift.

Thanks a lot for the input. Ive never thought to bend my arms more on the turnover. Ill try to keep that in mind as well as focus on sweeping the bar back off the floor a bit more. Much appreciated Blake.
