Snatch - After you finish your extension, keep the bar closer to your body by lifting the elbows up and to the sides as you pull down. They are too stiff and straight now.

Clean - When you lift off the floor, push the bar back toward your body. It should always be as close as possible to your legs. It's far away as it comes up to the knee, so it pulls you forward.
