Default Split Snatches

My O lifting coach, Gary Valentine, who recently set the New England masters' record for snatch and C&J (111/155), asked me to post the following comment, together with pictures (his computer was acting up):

"point would be that many who believe they cannot squat are often using too much back and arm swing in the lift, which is why they can't squat. if indeed they think they are splitters, they should be hitting the depth pictured in the attachments, which would mean they are truly splitting, not justifying using the back and and arms too much, which is easy to get away with in a shallow split."
