Default snatch feedback

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJUeaexeoOo

All lifts @70kg which is 5kg off my current PR.
I worked up to 70 and then for some stupid reason decided to see if I could go for 4 in a row , failed and only stopped when I thought I might run into the wall on the next lift. Bit stupid but , wont be doing it again anytime soon but would appreciate feedback nonetheless. i have noticed that my arse is lifting a little bit further ahead each lift .
Also not responsible for any of the music

In addition to the fast-rising ass, here's a few other things I noticed:
-Try to extend more (i.e., "stand tall") -- it doesn't look like you're opening up your hips or extending your whole body much (see pic)

-Related to the above, be more aggressive with your 2nd pull...really push yourself off the floor and make that bar move fast!!
-Looks like you're looping/windmilling the bar out in front as well. Keep it as close to your body as possible. Might have seen some early arm bend as well, but was difficult to tell from the YouTube vid. Before you commence each lift, try shaking your arms out a bit and turning your elbows very slightly outward.

Good luck!

Thanks Yuen very much appreciated.
I will try and act on those suggestions.
Do you or anyone else have any tips or cues on making sure I keep the bar closer or how to try and make sure I extend fully.

If I were coaching you in the gym, I'd probably be yelling "jump at the top, jump at the top of the pull) on every rep.
