Default feedback request - Snatch

Greg and Team,

Thanks for all that you do, it is a great bit of programming and information.

In this video, I have a fail at a 165# snatch, then a successful. I'm not sure which one is uglier.

http://youtu.be/lKF4BaIOhrM (WFS)

I know that I'm doing something to yank me forward, and almost all of my fails happen like the first lift (bar falls forward). I'm not exactly sure at what phase I'm losing this lift (first pull, second pull, transition)

Where am I losing it, and what drills/accessories should I do to correct it? Thanks for all your help.

Best Regards,
Phil Tobias

On both of them you tend to get a little too far over the bar right as you break from the ground and you get pulled forward the rest of the way. The first lift was actually a better pull but you weren't as aggressive in the turnover and left it slightly forward.

I would suggest on using halting snatch dead lifts and keeping your eyes forward in your lifts. You goal should be to keep the shoulders right over the bar as long as you can, stay on your heels, and push that bar in close past the knees.

Another drill to work on would be muscle snatches. the focus here will be keeping the bar close up the body and getting a feel for pulling the bar into that good over head squat position.

Thanks Steve, I'll add some Halting DL and muscle snatches in and check back in a month or so.

appreciate the feedback.

Maybe you could get a pair of weightlifting shoes.. the shoes that you're wearing are also aiding in transferring your weight forward at the bottom position.
