Strength isn't exactly the concern in this case - just your ability to move the weight properly. You can try the DL + Pull + snatch complex, and if you find you can't hit the positions properly, then simplify from there. Halting snatch DL may be a good one - slow pull to upper thigh, pause w shoulders in front of the bar, shins vertical, proper back angle.
