Have just started teaching myself how to snatch.

More difficult than I'd thought. Have bought some weightlifting shoes so that might help with the necessary range of motion so that I can catch in the proper overhead squat position.

Frustrating that after getting past my serious hip injury, these new little problems are cropping up.

Warming up gradually was pretty critical. Happened to me when I was doing westside due to the DE days. I kept things relatively high rep for a couple weeks, didn't lock out hard, and warmed my triceps up very gradually.

I found that squats aggravated them more than anything else, oddly enough, so consider BB style front squats in the mean time.

I also taped my elbow and had 1.2 g of ibuprofen a day.

When I had a go at snatches the other day, I found that I wasn't able to catch the bar in the overhead squat position. I then figured out that this is because I can't actually perform an overhead squat properly.

I initially thought that this might be because I lack the shoulder flexibility for it, but then that hasn't been an issue in push presses or jerks - I'm quite easily able to lockout well behind my head and with a wide grip I can get the bar all the way back like they do on those shoulder "dislocations" vids.

So then I thought it might actually be my hip mobility.

I've always done low-bar back squats, so my torso doesn't stay upright but dips quite far forward when I go deep into the squat. So maybe my hips aren't flexible enough to allow me to stay upright enough to catch the bar?

OTOH, I still get pretty good depth on the front squat and that doesn't seem to be an issue. and like I said I don't have any issues with push-presses or jerks or cleans.

I've just bought some weightlifting shoes so I'm hoping the heel helps with the issue and keeps me upright more.

thoracic, shoulder, ankle or hip issues

low bar squatting is also of zero use for weightlifting.

its much easier to FS atg than back squat and you need to be able to do both.

its also possible that you dont know how to ohs especially if you're coming from that wholly unproductive lbbs background.
post #28868 of 49473
OK.

I guess I'll have to shift over to high bar squats to try and get some flexibility.

Blech... need to find a new way to mix my protein. Just bought some casein and it doesn't mix into greek yogurt the same at all. Time to try fluffing it.

this shit is gross... maybe worse than when I tried eating whey powder dry uhoh.gif

ok feel sick now

I'm one who went from lb to hb. Trust me, squatting shoes will help but more importantly work on your mobility. My buddy squat snatches 60kg no problem in chucks and he is always working on mobiliry (also helps that his current job is a gym trainer)

Yeah, no way around it I guess. I had hoped it would be one of those exercises where I'd sorta naturally pick up the flexibility required as the weight increased and went from a power snatch to deeper and deeper into a regular snatch, but after my experience with going from power clean to proper clean I think I'll take the time to do it properly.

From the pic it looks like I'll also have to be working on how I grip the bar, as having the wrists bent back like that will properly help to keep the weight back. It also looks like he has a slightly wider stance which I guess will help with the flexibility issue.

that was just a funny pic that was kinda apropos

anyways the wrist is not supposed to be straight. self-learning weightlifting is a total bitch, especially if you don't know any proficient lifters or anything, much too easy to learn some shitty habits that become nigh impossible to correct.
