Haha cheers.... I don't think total fitness would be too happy if I dropped their weights tho. I really need to find the time to get down to hercs Sad

Didn't realise the Leinsters were then.... I MIGHT think about it. Sure 2 months is about 59 days more prep than I'd normally have Laughing

Where should the hang be from? Just above my knees?

Above knees, then below knees, then floor:-) Prep for the leinsters, I reckon you could do the superheavy records

Haha I was in the middle of dieting and coming down in weight.... but I'm a record whore so if there's some there I can get I'll go after them Laughing Laughing Laughing

Regardless of what the snatch is, I'm not getting close. What's the clean and jerk?

I believe up to U23 level you're looking to beat Matthew McCoy or Brendan Clifford,

Either way you're looking a 85-95 snatch and over 100kg - 125kg clean and Jerk

After that it only gets heavier....

Check out the Forum or http://www.weightliftingni.co.uk/Records.html for all the records, and best of luck

Lol that's just brilliant... I turn 23 literally right before the Leinster Open (24/7!!). Looks like any records are safe from me Laughing


Thanks for all the advice and feedback so far guys. Here's another chance to see me murdering some of your beloved lifts....

I did some hang power snatches and I think they almost resemble how the lift should be done?? The second set was ruuuuuuubbish but I think the first was decent enough for someone who's done about 6 snatches in a year!?!?

Feedback and critique is again appreciated.

If you are wanting to compete in July I would get some lifts in where you take the bar from the floor.

Get your buddy to take the video from the side on profile as it is easier to see bar path etc

You look a little rushed between reps. You see this with some of the new guys here who want to show people it is a light weight and try to get the reps finished as quickly as possible. You often find the technique is not as consistent. Make sure you get in good start position.

Bar may be bouncing off hips a little and swinging but hard to tell from angle.

My thinking behind working from the hang at the moment is that's where all the fun happens.... and the initial pull is just to get the bar into the right position for the second phase. I don't know how strictly true that is, but it would seem to me that the initial lift off the floor's the easiest part? - shoulders over the bar, push the floor away?

Will do. I got the 3/4 view cos I was watching for early arm bend. It doesn't seem to be a problem tho.

Noted!! thanks.

I think you're right about that. It's particularly noticeable on the first rep of set 2. The bar ends up way out in front of me as a result. I think I'm extending back rather than up Taner Sagir style as well. Not exactly sure what the implications are for the lift itself as a result of that tho!! The bar seemed to end up in a pretty solid position overhead on all 3 reps on the first lift, consistency in snatches is something that I can see being a big problem.
