    Snatch check

    Could someone give me some advice on the snatch? Just started a couple months ago but without weightlifting coach.
    Barbell Snatch with Unknown using Ubersense
    I'm afraid of learning wrong things in the movement, which I'll then keep until someone tells me and I have to start learning all over again.

    Thanks!

    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    I'm interested to hear what you guys have to say. I'm not above saying it don't know what I'm talking about. That's why I want to get trained by one of the best in the world.

    He meant he was refraining from the obvious dirty joke.

    Hey Tosca! I recommend you work on your mobility. Your torso should be more upright, and your hips (butt) dips down a bit in your bottom position. You can notice this really well on the second rep, but it's present in both. You should be solid through the whole thing. Look around for hip stretches, banded stretches, and make sure you do a good dynamic warm up. Try spending 10 minutes working on it before you lift, and double that time in the evening after lifting.

    You're starting from a low hang (just below the knees). Is it possible for you to get the weight a few inches lower? I know it's hard when dealing with the smaller plates, but when you move to higher weight and get rid of the blocks, you'll have to adjust quite a bit, so if you can get it there now it will be easier later on!

    Good luck!
