Post Snatch Form..

I'm still trying to pick up snatches. I've had SOME one on one coaching, but only a few sessions, so this is largely self taught.

Pointers appreciated. What I've noticed so far:

I'm power snatching, then riding it down into a squat - I need to get under it more. Looking at my shoulder angle I think lifting shoes will help with this (since I'm close to the limit of my shoulder ROM due to the forward lean in the squat) in addition to drilling snatch balances and tall snatches more.

Slightly early arm bend, I don't think I'm muscling it TOO much though, but do correct me if I'm wrong.
