Default Snatch Balance and Workout Tempature

Two Questions

1) I workout in my garage in east central FL and we are rapidly approaching the hot period of the year. Do you guys have any feelings either way about too hot or too cold. I have been thinking about insulating the garage door panels and putting in a room air conditioner. I have always enjoyed a sweltering workout and have made many a sweat angel in my garage. Any thoughts?

2) The snatch balance is harder than what I expected. I have watched the video many times and have tried it with some different weights. From what I can figure out the exercise is fast (as in I am aggressively getting under the weight). The first time I tried it I did it with a little less than my max snatch and missed it. I guess I now know what my weakness in the snatch is. As much as it pains me I think that some serious practice with PVC is in order tomorrow AM. Any thoughts on what to focus on as I am doing the movement (i.e. dropping under the weight, arms back, active shoulders)?

Thanks in advance.
