A steak burrito and coffee

So I was taking a look at my snatches from yesterday. I know that, when pulling from the floor, I have this habit of getting my weight very far back on the heels and pivoting my feet outward at the start of the 2nd pull. This of course does not happen when I start at the hang (above or below the knees). I strongly believe now that this is greatly affecting my power, as my acceleration is delayed by a few crucial moments.

I suspect this is why, on heavier attempts, my teammates say my acceleration looks late and I seem to rely more on diving under the bar.
