If it is a bump & swing style of snatch my query is whether the suggestions provided before the video link post are still applicable??
bump and swing is not a legitimate technique, it is bad technique. You should be aiming for a smooth bar path/shallow 'S' curve. Tons of great material here and also on Sean waxman's site.
