Thanks so much, Blake!
I have pretty long arms, so it's a bit challenging to find the right grip. I've using the guideline of having the bar be in the hips and have it not move if I raise me knees. But yeah, that leaves it with not much distance between the head.
I've practiced snatching yesterday and it felt great to have the hips make proper contact with the bar. I've noticed that I should probably bring my clean grip out a bit as well, so the bar sits higher for the second pull.
But as for the snatch? What is commonly the solution for people with long arms? If I use a closer grip, contract with the bar would most likely become quite painful
