Ahh. That makes sense.

I've always used a snatch balance, to OHS to try to get strong through the movement. I tried a heaving snatch balance too.. but I just tried that out a few times.. still getting comfortable with it.

A drop snatch sounds like a great way to "drop" under the bar and gain confidence. Thank you sir!

Also.. its pretty obvious in the video that I maintain a pretty constant upright torso.. during the transition, I dont have any forward lean due to what looks like.. poor shoulder flexibility. I just cant seem to get my arms back far enough. If I widen my grip, I can.. but then during the hip explosion.. I nail my pubic bone or outer hip bones. So I use a somewhat narrow grip. Pretty much my index finger on the "ring"
