Default Snatch critique

I was hoping to get some help with my snatch. Unfortunately the one coach I've been able to find in my area is only training one person (olympic hopeful), so I'm out of luck there. I would really appreciate any input I could get from the more experienced lifters on this forum.

I know I have a lot of work to do, but not sure what the biggest problems are, or how I should prioritize the things I need to work on. I feel like I have trouble getting under the bar to catch it right with heavier weights, I definitely struggle locking my arms out, and my bottom position needs work (torso too upright, etc.).

These three videos show me working up to a new max (have since done 5 more kg). Links are WFS unless you consider an ugly snatch to be inappropriate.




P.S. I know I need shoes, but I haven't been able to afford them. Finally scraped the cash together so they're on order. Just getting into this stuff and I'm completely hooked. I want to get better.
