Susie,
I'd suggest you forget about the SDHP and either just do OL-style clean pulls or simply learn how to swing and snatch a KB the "Girevoy Sport" way (as in, using as little effort as possible).

SDHP are an exercise that puts a lot of strain on the lower back as form degrades with higher reps, along with putting the shoulder in the internally rotated position at the top of the pull.

Or you could just row instead, since the original implementation of SDHPs was as a substitute for those who didn't have rowers...
