What do you attach them to other than the bar? I am curious about using them (thinking about getting some), and want to know how you are using them to make gains. Do you do pulls also? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Watching the 100 i noticed a large "loop" or swing onto you at top, seemingly caused by slightly excessive push forward of bar at hips. so it seemd you had some horizontal displacement of the bar caused by hips, but were able to pull it onto you at top.
then followed the miss in front with 102 or so, which you were not able to pull onto you.
then followed the bands which seem to direct the bar onto you on the way up, as you seem to have masterd finding the center spot with them. maybe this is creating a bad habit carrying over into the lifts.
cant tell too well tho with only this angle, blocked by the weights.
here's how a scientist woulld look at the addition of band work. one would have too design a study where you compared something traditionally as effective for your technique development, such as going down to 50-75% weight and doing as many reps as you do with the bands. only, focus on having the weight pull you straight up on every rep, bouncing out of the whole immediatly straght up, instead of sitting at the bottom after swinging it in like with the 100. know what i mean? hard to say if its the bands helping (or slightly hurting long term), or the fact that you are doing more drilling to add to your technique base. interesting stuff.-g

This has been a problem before I ever touched a band as you know. If I lost a snatch it was in front always. Let me add that sometimes after I do a snatch workout I am basically bruised at the power position regardless of the bands or not. I have been doing the Burgener Warmup drills to try to improve the bar path on the snatches and seems to have helped a bit but I am still looping and I knew it too. Is this a timing issue? Or am I simply overdriving with my hips? I try to stay on flat feet as long as I can and when I hit the second pull I just try to focus on keeping a big arch and raising my chest.
I'll post some vids from last night. Personally I think the bands have improved my form some but I could be wrong. My focus last night was making the weights of course! But when I caught the weight not going soggy as Chris noted I did just a bit of.
Elbows to ceiling!

that would be the coaching point in my gym for what ive seen so far. if the lifter focusses on finishing the pull with hard trap extension straight up, following with pulling elbows to the ceiling, it usually gets rid of swing.
dont get me wrong, great lifting! i just think you have more in you right now, and want to see you on the quickest path to 120-130, espescailly that you can oh sqaut that now. pretty much on your own, youve got it down to one thing that needs a little correction, great work! the bands have got you focussing on getting iunder the bar quickly, thats always a good thing. perhaps some snatching from the hang at mid thigh or even higher to focus on pulling elbows up. keep it up! -g
