Thanks for all the advice on the 1 RM Hang Snatch. The event went ok... I nailed 215 twice in the warmup area, and felt really good going into the 4 min to find max weight. I opened at 205, hit it easily. Loaded up 215, and somehow barely missed it twice. By the time I hit 215, I had 15 sec left, and had no chance at hitting 225. Oh well, at least I met my goal, though woulda been nice to exceed.
Anyways, what I learned from drilling the hang position this last week, is that it is extremely beneficial to enhancing the positioning of my 2nd pull. So, yesterday I did some hang cleans. I did triples up through 245, and then singles at 255, 265, 275 and 285. I realized that as the weight increases, I tend to finish my pull and then just drop to the bottom and the bar crashes on me, making the front squat out of the hole substantially more difficult. This isn't a problem with the lighter loads, but at 275 and higher it is an issue.
What should I do to eliminate this bad habit? Is there anything I can do to make this a consistent practice as weights increase? video of 275 is below. Thanks
