Just really quick - on snatches, when you pull under, keep your chest up and squat the hips straight down - turn the bar over all the way behind your neck rather than reaching your chest/head forward to get under.

Cleans same basic thing - instead of sitting back w the hips and leaning the chest to the bar, keeping bringing the bar back to yourself, squat straight down and lift the head and chest up into the bar.
