WHat's up people...been following this programming since april and have seen some major improvements in everything but my snatch, I don't think it's as much of a technique problem as it is a strength problem, really found out how minimal my strength is in my shoulders when i tried that 3RM snPP today. Should i keep following these wods or follow them and add in certain movements, or switch to a lesser volume program where i can add what i need? Many thanks!
P.S. Could actually be a technique problem I just don't realize it...I could send in some vids if you guys have time to critique and what not.

should i assume the Snatch pull off the blocks is started from mid thigh?

Mid-thigh is good.
