A little background on me:
- I've been weightlifting a year and a half
- I don't have a coach
- My best lifts are 192.5 SN, 235 CJ, 270 FS, 330 BS
Snatch (High/Low): 176/175
CJ (H/L): 225/220
FS (H/L): 270 (pr)/ 255
BS (H/L): 320/295
I had my friend video me for a few lifts and one thing I'm seeing in my Snatch is that when I reach the power position (hips at bar), I'm not on my heels. Do you have any suggestions for helping me fix this issue while staying compliant with this program? All thoughts are appreciated.
Here's one of the videos:
I think the bar is slightly away from you before you even lift it off the floor, consequently it is in front and ends up arcing/looping around (short pull) hence the back and forth/rocking in the catch (well held!)
get the bar slightly closer to the shins/in very light contact and keep your chest up/push it out and keep that position throughout the pull/catch
