I appreciate the detailed critique. For the snatch, it seems the lighter the weight, I tend to full squat less, and do more of a power snatch. I'm trying not to do that when I train, so that I get the correct muscle memory locked in my brain. I'm still working with only 40-45kg when training so I can be more conscious of that triple extension, as well as the other phases of the lift. I could be over-analyzing, but it does feel like I'm improving. It's definitely an improvement from just over a month ago - I didn't used to brush the bar against my thigh.

As for the clean and jerk, the dip and drive seems to be the more difficult issue now. I'll continue to press (no pun intended!) on and post more videos for more help. Yes, that was my first meet. I was intending 60 for my 3rd snatch, but was feeling pretty confident. I could probably do more than that, but haven't tried yet. Thanks again!
