By the way guys, I have switched to segmented snatches instead of regular snatches. I want to reinforce the positions because my snatch performance is VERY inconsistent.Is this a good move? (Don't recommend coaches please.)
I don't want to run Vik off the forum, I think he now knows we prefer to getting a coach, so let's not keep beating the guy down about it. To his question, by segment snatches do you mean snatches as USAW model (hip, above the knee, below the knee, floor - ie hang variations)? I personally, when coaching, use hang for the beginner while teaching proper pulling from the floor. Once they seem to have a sufficient hang snatch and pull form the floor I move to putting them together into a power snatch. Usually once I teach the power snatch I do not go back to hang variation unless they are have trouble learning the power snatch or are too inflexible to sit in a proper start position. I will mainly use it to reinforce proper techinque after some work on the power snatch has been conducted. I will defer to lighter weights and a focus on proper techinque first.For me personally since I am predominantly self coached - I will rarely do a hang snatch unless it is for warm-up with the bar. I find more use of getting video of my full snatch then reviewing the video between sets and trying to fix a problem on the next set. This is easier said than done since you are getting after the fact feedback, and you need to have a eye for some technique flaws, but its the best I can do. Also, specificity speaking I feel I get more out of the full version then a part of the exercise.
