Default Maintaining Proper Back angle on Snatch & C&J


This is my first post to this forum. I spent the last year at the CF gym I was a member of focused primarily on powerlifting. I'm now working out in my garage and trying to focus exclusively on weightlifting. I'm currently in the second week of the "Starter Program for Catalyst Athletics Online Workouts."

Here's a link to one of my snatch lifts on this past Saturday, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzuETO1G50E. The lift at 155lb was a PR, but I know there's plenty wrong with it. The primary thing I'm noticing is my inability to maintain my back angle and keep my chest up (this happens w/ the C&J also). At a certain point my back is almost parallel to the floor.

What would you recommend I do, or what supplemental exercises should I incorporate, in address this issue?
