More Snatch Assessment.
Below, you’ll see Jason make a strong effort, but miss a 1RM Power Snatch. Notice (look at the still picture below the video) that he’s on his toes (ankle extension) and bending his elbows prior to full hip extension. We executed a short jumping drill. Look at the triple frame picture below. I used the PVC pipe as reference for his knee position. All i asked him to do was start from the 2nd pull position (torso over the bar with bar mid-thigh), then just jump while focusing on his heels. Notice how he “rebends” his knees to jump. The PVC pipe is there to show you the rebend. When he jumps, he keeps his arms straight and drives from the heels. He naturally follows through to the ankles (which is great)…but the important part is he extends his hips PRIOR to his ankles extending. The ankle extension is jus like the natural follow through in a swing. Ideally, he’d already be pulling back under the bar right now, so the ankle extension would be limited.
Ankle Extension & Elbow Flex Prior to Full Hip Extension
“Scoop”/Double Knee Bend Jumping Drill. His torso is leaning forward a bit (undesirable) in the jump, but we fixed the early ankle extension.
