OK - your hip position definitely improves later in the video. I would encourage trying a static start instead of the dynamic though for now until you get that totally consistent. But I'm a conservative weinie.

Other than that, your snatch looks pretty damn good. Bar is staying close, coming into the hips nice and high, etc. On the OHS, though, watch out for pushing your hips back. I know you dig Rip, as do I, but his approach to back squatting does not jive well with O squats. Push the hips in under the shoulders instead.

As far as the pre-snatch hairballs... Not sure what to say. I think YOU need to give us the explanation to that one.
