Off the blocks? So is that height about mid-hang where your second pull would start? If so, I would think you start with Shoulders just in front of the bar. Where ever the blocks are set you would try to train the exact movement of the regular snatch. Starting from the floor Coach everett usually likes vertical arm orientation but at some point around knee height and going into mid-hang your shoulders move slightly in front of the bar. All I am trying to communicate is at whichever point in this motion your blocks are starting you at then you want to set yourself up like you were in the middle of a regular snatch movement.
