Default Split Snatch Help

I am new to this forum and to Olympic weightlifting in general. I have a crossfit background. Since I stopped crossfit and have only focused on olympic lifting, I have switched to split snatch for multiple reasons. But I was wondering if anybody new of any good resources for the split snatch. Articles, videos etc.

Any help would be much appreciated

Josh Everett does a split snatch. Try a search with his name in the CF Journal.

Harrison -

There really isn't much to know - the rest of the lift should be the same as a squat snatch. If you're getting into a legit deep split, you won't be bringing your front foot as far forward than if you're doing a split that more resembles a jerk split (which I assume you are - most lifters who split these days do so because of injuries and flexibility limitations that prevent them from getting into a deep split nearly as much as a squat).
