Default Stretching for the Snatch


I have been trying to learn the olympic lifts(I'm studying sport science but they don't teach the lifts in my university so I tohught it's important to master them) for a month and a half, but I am having lots of flexibility problems concerning the snatch. I come from a bodybuilding type of background and I have poor flexibilty so I'm having problems to do a propper snatch. I'm 27 years old. I think the main issue is lack of back flexibility, my trunk goes forward when I overhead squat. I do dislocates all the time but i think the issue is more around the mid back.

I have tried all kinds of streches but I am not improving substantially. I would like to hear some efficient advice for people that have been in my situation.

Do i keep doing chinese jerks/overhead squats or is there anything I can do to speed up the process? It's really frustrating to have this bad form in the snatch.

Thanks in advance
