Default Snatch Check

Hi. 1st rep, camera angle not great. Next 3 give a better view.

Any tips are appreciated. My first time watching myself on video, pretty cool.

Thanks in advance!

Snatch 4 reps on 2-16-11

Maybe some others can chime in but to me it looks like you are still going "around" your knees with the bar. You want the bar path to come inwards of the body in the 1st pull.

What helps for me and other clients that have this problem is the positional/pause drills where you hold certain positions (1" off floor, below knees, hang) on the way up to hitting a high hang snatch.

You can see you aren't pulling the bar in-ward due to your catch position (feet come forward in your squat). Fixing this should bring the bar in proper allignment and should allow you to catch laterally or with your feet slightly behind you.

I agree, the bar is coming away from you as it leaves the floor. Also, your shoulders are much farther over the bar than they need to be. I like the positional/pause drills. Also, focus on driving with your legs/straightening your legs off the floor. Also, get your upper body just a little more upright at the set-up so that your shoulders are more in-line with the bar.
