The biggest problem i have had with any of the complex movements (cleans/snatches) is the whole quickly dropping under the bar to catch the weight. I dont have a problem propelling the weight up but its the catching part i find difficult. Im thinking thoracic mobility might be the weak link.
It almost seems like jerking (*not jerking off) is the same way because you are dipping under the weight after driving it overhead.
This whole dipping and catching thing for me seems like the hardest thing to get good at .
I dont know, but for me , clean grip power snatches feel the easiest and most natural because its the same grip i would be using with an overhead press , and its more just about grabbing the weight and lol throwing it up over your head.
Is there any cues or specific things you worked on in order to get proficient with the catch phase of cleans/snatches? Just wondering.
