Side View Snatch with Bar Path Traced

My thoughts – the bar seems a little far out in front and doesn’t come into the hips for the second pull.  It then kicks forward after meeting the hips instead of traveling straight up, partially because it was too far in front to begin with.  Hold it close, maybe even think of shaving your legs with the bar.  Remember, it’s not a deadlift, so think in and back not just up.  Plus, check where the bar starts – is it in front of feet or by the ball of foot or midfoot?

I’m still very impressed with how much progress you’ve made in such a short time.  Kudos!

    I completely agree with all of your critiques. It is tough for me bc deadlifting took me a long time to get down. And so now, it is tough for me to not do that. I am working on it. Hopefully I just keep showing more improvement over time. As far as where the bar starts. I think it is probably midfoot? But I will have to double check that next time! Thanks for everything!
