Default Please Critique my Snatch - Could use some Help

Hello all,

Looking for some feedback on my snatch:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTs5HauBXs4

1st thing that i can see for myself is that the bar is coming way too far in front.

Any suggestions for re-training this bad form?

I was also thinking that i could do the 1st pull a bit slower?

Anyway, thanks in advance

Brook

Yes, slow down the pull from the floor for now and force yourself to move your weight back to your heels as the bar comes to the knees. Separate the bar smoothly rather than yanking on it - push down w the legs and keep your chest up. Fix that, and you'll probably be fine the rest of the way.
