Hello everyone! I am new to the forums/weightlifting so I figured I'd start off with a little snatch critique post. I've been practicing the snatch for a little over a month as of now. I'm currently visiting Japan right now so getting coached isn't a possibility as of now due to my extremely inadequate knowledge of Japanese, and the closest club being a 2 hour train ride away. So as of right now my only resources consist of youtube videos, Greg Everett's book, and online forums.
Well, enough rambling from me, on to the video. Any advice at all is appreciated!
Your first pull and bottom position look good but the main issue is with the 2nd pull. It looks like you're bumping the bar with your hips and dropping underneath it. That's why the weight ends up out in front of you instead of over the shoulders. You need to aggressively drive up with the legs and pull your body under the bar. Think about pushing your feet through the ground as long as possible and getting as tall as you can to achieve that full body extension.
On the 3rd pull, pull yourself under the bar with your elbows up and out so you're maintaining tension on the bar throughout the movement.
I think you're doing pretty well for being self-coached. You seem to get the bar behind you a little better on these reps. But, you need to be more aggressive throughout the lift. Fast of the hip and fast on the catch. You're still kind of "floating" the bar into place after it comes off the hip. You can do this because it's light, but you won't be able to do that once it gets heavy.
Thanks for the tips Tamara! Here's some footage of my last snatch session. Please forgive me for my lackluster display of speed, was a little fatigued since I squatted before hand, but still decided to get some footage. Any help is appreciated as usual!
