I have been working on the Olympic lifts on my own for a few months now (no access to a club or coach) Recently I read that I should try lowering my hips on the 1st pull, because I have long legs. The video is my first attempt at this. I have to say that the lift did feel a lot smoother than usual, although it was only 80% of my 1RM.
Also I read that if using the low hip position, that when working on strength one should focus more on the legs than the back. I do three workouts per week and do back squats 2x per week and fronts squats 1x per week, as well as good mornings and RDL's. Is that enough? Currently my C&J pr is 70% of my back squat 1RM and my snatch is only 50% of my squat 1rm. It seems I have to work on technique..no? Thanks for any help
