Good job, try and watch out for that early arm bend (think of your arms as cables) and keep the bar closer to your hips (before you lift tense your lats..i find that helps).

check these vids out...might help in addition to the catalyst DVD: http://www.californiastrength.com/vi...egory/5/snatch
Keep lifting!

I'll echo Paul on this one, keep the arms loose and straight.

Also, on the next video, post the full speed version. It makes this much easier. You can still post the slow motion one, but post the full-speed version also.

Definitely breaking the elbows too soon. Although the arms shouldn't be actively locked out. They should be straight only because you're NOT bending them. Then pull yourself under the bar with your elbows up and out. Keep the back and lats tight throughout the movement.

Thanks for that.

i can see that (now). he is bending the arms before the bar gets to the crease.

So commence to bend the arms to a high pull when the bar is about the crease.

thanks again.

cheers
