Thanks for your time!
# 1: More snatches done in proper form.
# 2: More snatches done in proper form.
# 3: Same as numbers 1 and 2.
I don't mean to be a smart aleck. It is something that I believe about training. The best way to improve your technique in a lift is to do that lift as often as you can under strict technique-reinforcement environments. Video tape yourself and watch. Once you spot something, quickly fix it (or at least TRY to fix it) at the next set. Do some hang snatches, power snatches, etcetera with an empty bar or a stick.
When that fails, do segment lifts.
I really don't believe in doing the variations of the lifts. They can only disrupt your progress if you are not the type of person who gets a direct benefit from them.
This is just my two cents. Others may have different ideas.
