    Respiritu,

    To answer your questions, most judges that I know would have given you that second snatch, but I have seen on many occasions some judges forcing the lifter to hold it for approx. 3-5 seconds. I wouldn't call any of your attempts for a "spike", and while I agree that we should respect the equipment, I have rarely seen that rule enforced without some sort of warning.

    Also, I agree with you that you are not using your upper body to its full potential. Learn to turn your elbows out so they point along the bar and KEEP THEM THERE, even during the pull under phase. It seems as though you are T-rexing with your arms, which is causing you to simply "float" under the bar as opposed to forcefully accelerating under the bar via both upper body and hamstrings. High pulls should help, but only if you do them correctly. Make sure that you keep the bar as close to your body as possible while keeping your wrists UNDER your elbows. Pull vertically as long and high as possible without over-extending at the hips.

    But in all seriousness, nice work for your first meet. Do more of them...

    It's in Cary, NC.

    Thank you for all the inputs, guys.

    I tried my best not to lean onto my toes, but I couldn't avoid it for some reasons.

    I'm guessing I lost some overhead stability, and my muscles weren't engaged properly.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, those were good looking snatches, and nice gym!

    Ian Wilson within my back foot persists.

    130kg is ~95%

    I've tried to reinforce a better footwork with lighter weights and just footwork work without any weight in general, but it just won't go away.

    Is there any cue or drill that I could/should use?

    And I am very well aware of the front knee

    Longtime Pendlay member making the switch. Haven't figured our how to imbed Instagram videos yet so help on that would be appreciated as well. As it stands...

    A recent 5-rep no hook no feet snatch at 160lbs:

    And a semi recent 3-rep snatch PR at 18


    I usually have a tendency to jump forward and miss lifts out front. Anything blatantly wrong with these lifts?

    Thanks for the embedding info...in regards to moving feet, I assume you mean in the second video (as the first was a no hook no foot movement drill). How would I move them differently then what I'm already doing?

    In the no-hook, no-feet drill, I think using straps defeats the purpose of the drill.
