He's been training for about 4yrs now...the past 3yrs 3x a week. So he has a lot of hrs training.
He does need to be faster under the bar to be up there with the Elite lifters. I think he'll snatch 2x bw over the next his lifting life if he sticks with it. He looks slower under the bar because he extends really well but yeah there is a lag between his full extension and his receive position.
It'll be really interesting to see how his lift go up over the next few years.
