So I've been having problems with the snatch, for as long as I have been doing it. I have no coach, and its not really possible for the next few months. I was working on my first pull yesterday, and my first pull seems ok. The main issue for me is that I am not staying over the bar.
From what my friends and videos tell me, I am actually leaning back on the final extension, using an explosive hip bend instead of the legs to get the bar up. Essentially, I am using the hips to do all the work and the bar always ends in front. All my PR snatches have involved steps forward or the snatch catch involved a forward jump.
I have a few videos, I meant to take some yesterday, but I was pressed for time. I have been watching the Cal Strength videos, but when I see the "snatch second pull" video, I just get confused, because it seems to validate what I am doing.
Hang Snatches with 60
I have plenty of clean and jerk videos, but my clean is much better. I don't have the same issues, despite the fact that I know the motion is more or less the same.
Thanks in advance for any tips, drills, cues to do!
