Default First post, looking for some things to work on

First post here, thought I would finally post a video and hopefully get some feedback about some things to work on. Thanks in advance!

Here 3 snatch reps from the blocks @80% 1rm. Maybe I am pulling a little back instead of up in the 2nd pull?

Right off of the blocks on each lift you tip over the bar a bit and have to adjust on the way up. Make sure you set up with a vertical shin, weight back on the heels, and the shoulder right on top of the bar. As you break the bar from the blocks make sure you keep your chest up and you push the bar in to your hips.

The turnover was strong on each lift however you look a bit uncomfortable sitting into an overhead squat on the first 2. Keep working on sitting in and working on hip mobility.

Not bad over all, looked fairly easy for doing 80% for a triple off the blocks.
