    Snatch form Check

    First time ever doing Snatches. I watched California Strengths Snatch progression video and went from there. Let me know what I need to work on, thanks.

    I am far from an expert but if you can work on catching it lower then you will be better off. Less distance you have to pull and it is a lot harder to catch it in the middle and then squat down. Much easier said than done though...

    Thanks I am aware of catching it lower is better. Kinda hard with that weight though. From my own analysis I need to keep the bar close on the 2and and 3rd pull.
