Hi Arden! Your snatch practice was top notch, again. Your receiving position was perfect, (IMO): thighs parallel to the floor or slightly below parallel and an arched in low back at that position, and well erected upper body. Well done! You're making a very good effort pulling the bar closer to the body. A very nice pre-lift ritual: squatting down, pre-stretching the quads and back, coming up with the hips; pre stretch the hams, going down to slightly below start position: pre stretch, elevate hips slightly-pull. Exellent preparation. In the lighter hangs, after a few reps: no jumping for-aft-or to the side in the hang snatches, permanent feet ball contact. Perfect. The deltoids will become even more flexible in training. Static stretching is often not enough to overcome the tough tendons, at least in my experience. Good rack with the bar ending up behind the head. The form loss in some later lifts will resolve itself with training. Don't skip the lighter practice, ever. Your technique can not be too good.To prepare for the hang snatches: when you stand with the bar, try to make the lever, your upper body, as rigid as possible: chest up and out, shoulders back, arch in low back, elbows fully extended. All the best,Sjaak smorenburg
By the way that lumberjack video was awesome! How does one get involved in that sort of thing?
Lumberjack vids were awesome....very entertaining...i would love to see you play slow pitch softball
Hi Arden, Cool workout! Going good. These things I noticed:I notice that you rush between reps, no need for that; take a bit more time it'll help your technique.As you mentioned, the presses were not fully locked out, it good to keep the movement going until they are, with locked shoulders and elbows. I do understand that you'd met Buddha at that point.Keep on trying to keep the bar close and on the thighs longer, and get full body extension at the top of the pull. Try not to jump forward or backward, it'll help perfecting your pull. You could put some marker on the floor check progress after the lift. (chalk)? Have you thought of switching from Sumo to clean/snatch grip deadlifts? If you try them select the weight so that you duplicate your clean & snatch pull, and that you can end up fully extended on the toes, full shrug.Sjaak Smorenburg
