Think about pushing against the floor with your legs as long as you can and getting that full extension. This may be the reason why you're jumping forward as well. I would suggest doing snatch/clean pulls to help.

Also, if your want to gain some overhead strength, do some presses/push presses and snatch presses/push presses behind the neck. You can do clean-grip overhead squats or squat jerks as a warm-up instead.

Additionally, I agree with Richard and Javier when they say you should have a coach with you that knows what they're talking about to help correct you as you train.
Thanks for the feedback man.

I will work on what you said I do notice that my knees never get fully extended. I watch a lot of my videos slowed down on Kinova, and that helps out a lot.

I will think about pushing down more against the ground more though.

I have been feeling like my snatch is getting better and I am getting a better sense of sending the bar up and not so far out.

I will upload some new videos this week coming up.

I have recently starting doing a lot more behind the neck push presses and standing OHP's.

These seem to be helping a lot.

Overall man thanks for the advice, If you got any more or see anything new share it with me, anything is appreciated.

I will get up to Akron to see Daniel Bell soon if I can. It will have to be some time during the summer as I got finals next week and then I am done with college.

Pretty happy about that!

Thanks Everyone.

I do agree with the clean and snatch pulls too, I will start doing these more.
