I finally broke the 220lb/100kg barrier last night on the Snatch and just missed 225lbs. My arm buckled a little and I dumped it. I have it on a disk but not sure how to upload it.
I noticed I have several flaws in my form. I haven't been able to get up and work with Dr. Pursley in quite sometime due to money and family issues but I am plugging along with what I can. I know that if I could get up there and work with him once or twice per month my lifts would excell but at this point I am just not able. Anyway, back to the form I think I may be kicking the bar out a bit at the top.

Nice lifting and thanks for the vids. From what I saw, you have had excellent coaching. The worst thing I could say about the first snatch (100kgs) was that it seemed you relaxed just slightly in the catch. I thought the miss at 102.5kgs was caused because you were just a little touch short on your finish. Its possible some flaw might be more visible from the 3/4 angle, but these looked nice.
Again, thanks. Please keep us updated with more video!

On the missed lift if you grab the little curser thing and kind of take control of the video so you can see it by frames you should be able to see my right arm buckle a little on me. Could this be because I was just a little short on my finish?
I have had superior coaching. Its just that its been so limited and far in between sessions I sometimes lose grasp of what Dr. Pursley has taught me. I have only trained with him 5 or 6 times in the past year since starting Olympic Lifting last March. He puts so much info out to me each time its almost to much for me to retain so I just try to remember the basics. One of my lifting partners at LAC told me when all else fails go with a bigger and tighter arch. This is a point I need to start putting back into play.

May I ask what is the thinking/concept behind the use of bands. I have seen two video clips on this site showing bands being used for snatches and back home in Ireland I never heard of this.

What kind of mini bands are those? Jump stretch? What weight is on the bar? Are you using percentages, like 60% of your max, like you would if you were squatting with the bands?

I worked up to a 220lbs Snatch for a single. I then dropped back to 50%- 110lbs+IronWoody Minis for 8x2. I want to keep these light, focus on form and pratice accelerating against the bands.
I know this goes against all that is holy in Olympic Weightlifting, but within just a few weeks it gave me a 5lbs gain on a Snatch thats been stagnant for a few months, plus I was just a hair away from making that a 10lbs gain. Also another point I want to mention is that the last time I went over 200lbs in the Snatch was January 9th. I did 205x1 and it was difficult. Since then The heaviest I had been was one workout a few weeks ago wher I worked up to 195 for a single. All other workouts had basically been done with the bands with around 135lbs for the most part.
Plus the good thing is that I enjoy doing the Classic lifts with the bands and that means alot. If it ain't fun you aren't going to stick with it long.
