Ok, so here's two attempts at 135 lbs. Body weight is about 145. I did these after finished deadlifting and grip work (1 single w/o straps @ ~92% and then 1x3 w/ straps at the same weight; grip was holding 205 clean grip as long as possible).
I was planning on just doing light weight to practice, but I got carried away and did this after doing 3 or 4 snatch high pulls with it. By the way, I waited a minute or so before trying again, I just edited out me walking around.
What do you see wrong with the first attempt? Second? What cues or things would you recommend to improve/fix it?
Watching it in slower motion I noticed my hips are rising first, but I don't know if that is because it's lower than I'm using to starting off the floor. Also, the bar is out of front of me too much I think (even before the top part).
Second one I don't know what happened. I think I was trying to move forward under the bar or something and ended up just hitting myself in the forehead. Yes, embarassing and goofy looking. I hope to fix my form so I don't ever have to deal with the shame of that again (or getting injured potentially).
Judging by the first attempt I'm confident that I SHOULD be able to snatch 135 right now, maybe a little bit more, but my technique is holding me back.
