I wish I could say that was less than 50% of my max. I'm sure with proper technique in place, I could definitely hit 80...The most I've snatched was 75, which, I may or may not be able to do that now. I know I can get 70. Between the videos taken in November and February, is when I've been trying to tackle this problem.
I often see the second pulls of experienced lifters, and how they really arch backwards sometimes. Is that a consequence of viciously extending a heavy weight? Or is it a conscious action? I haven't noticed if the same occurs with a lighter weight. I'm not sure why I have so much trouble keeping the bar close; perhaps a bad habit I'm trying so hard to break, because my elbows used to bend much less than now (if any bend at all!).
Thanks for everyone's inputs.
