Coach,
Is Snatch deadlifts the best assistance exercise for practicing keeping the knees flared all the way through the first pull to the mid-hang position. I have found this is really key for me. I am not sure why this makes such a big difference because I have short legs to begin with. But for some reason, the knee flare really helps me keep my torso upright and clear my knees better when snatching. So aside from working these snatch deadlifts, what else. Do I need to slow things down to drill it in my brain or work more explosive like snatch pulls....
