Kelly -

You're scooping. Remember, you won't feel it when it's happening - if you do, you're doing it intentionally. It's a pretty subtle thing - try to find video of Stefan Botev snatching - some of the best lifts ever in my opinion, and you have to watch his knees extremely closely to notice that double knee bend occurring.
