in snatch your hips are too low at start. with knees bent this much, bar is too far in front, has to go around knees to start. this causes the jump forward chasing the bar , not good. lift hips 2-3 inches, keep bar close to you, this will lead to better timed and more powerful second pull, striaght up with no swing. usaw has Pull Motion Video, makes all this clear, hips s/b higher than knees art start.

jerk, the back foot is landing to the side, s/b straight aheadon ball of foot, knee bent. recovery should be front leg first, then back. good to get the head thruogh and under bar, but dont look down, that pulls the bar forward - kind of a chicken or the egg thing with the recovery.
