So here’s the deal. I feel very proficient in the snatch and clean whenever I do hang drills… anything from high hang, mid-thigh, or above knee. The lifts just seem to come easy for me at those points, and the bar tracks quite well, and I always land in a very stable squat (i.e. on my heels). The bar just flings up from these positions.
However, whenever I snatch or clean from the floor, it doesn’t ‘click’ for me during the 2nd pull, and the lift is usually left in front or some power is sacrificed due to poor bar tracking. I can snatch 100kg from the hang, but I consistently miss it from the floor (or catch it forward) because the technique changes somehow.
I was thinking some snatches/cleans from below knees on the blocks could do me some good… or maybe some certain cues to help me get into the position I need to for the 2nd pull. I could really use some help and I’ve been stuck at a 110kg snatch for a few months now, and I have the strength and power for a 120 or even 125kg snatch. Thanks in advance.
