Thanks George.

Played around with this today to see how it felt and it seemed to work out okay. Gonna have a look at the Snatch deadlift videos.

As I understand the first pull, it's really only to bring the bar from the ground to a good second pull position, and to keep the back uninvolved, so you're more upright to begin and try to use a leg extension to raise the bar (probably not explaining this very well). So it's not the same as a deadlift (ala Rip) with a snatch width grip and a hook grip - which I found very uncomfortable today @ 70Kg (I've stubby assed fingers so that could be it)

Thanks again,
Col
