Default Catching bar on balls of feet on snatch

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsUbnl9Aj1w

Hey guys, I've had this problem for quite a while. I'm not sure if it's because of hip tightness or just bad habits ingrained. But I only start to do this when I go above 85% of my 1RM.

Any cues or exercises suggested to fix this?

It's because you're not using your legs at all and are reaching your hips into the bar. Bring the bar back to your hips and jump

Also, try thinking.. jump back an inch with a lower weight. If you look closely at your feet, they are hopping forward an inch or two. If you concentrate on "jump back" and use a chalk line or tape to monitor your distance.. it might help!
