With the quality of the video and the angle of the camera, it's hard to even make much of an analysis.

Snatch-
The snatches all look pretty easy. You start with a really wide stance because you have long legs so if that works for you then that's fine. It would be beneficial if you had a little better flexibility/mobility to get lower in the bottom position because you almost power snatch each one.

Clean-
From what I can tell your cleans looks good, you just need to work on building strength in the legs. You can pull the bar high but your weakness is getting out of the hole. I would jump on a squat cycle for sure.

Hi Blake,thank you for the comments. Actually the video had better quality but i kinda screwed it with you tube editor
Usually i hit a lower position in the warm-up room,then at the platform i have the tendency to catch the lifts around parallel.
As for leg strength,i'm trying to improve that by squatting first and then doing the lifts.

That's fine if you're on a designated squat program. Simply squatting first before everything isn't necessarily going to make your legs stronger. That just means you're going to feel a little more fresh when doing your squats. If you're not on a squat cycle, I would do your more technical lifts first then squat towards the end of the training session.

Thank your for the advice.

Get your shoulders over more from the start. That looks like the main reason why your lifts are forward ie the bar has to travel round your knees and you end up too far back/behind the bar. Re jerk, bend your back leg.
