Default 52 yr old lifter with Snatch technique problem

Hey folks,

I'm new to this board. I've been Olympic lifting on and off for over 30 years. Got into powerlifting for awhile which caused some major shoulder issues....big surprise there, right? I'm looking into training on the very simple Master's Oly training routine that Greg Everett wrote and which is posted on this site.

Anyway, my question is pretty simple: Knowing that I have some major flexibility issues from years of training the powerlifts, I had to switch from a squat style snatch to the old split style in order to get the bar overhead. My recovery from a squat style snatch is absolutely horrible, though I can still power snatch without any problems. The weird thing is that I can squat clean without too much trouble.

Anyone out there split style snatch and use the squat clean for the C&J?

Cheers,

John
