Snatch Progression

Been working on my O Lifts...

So, with the clean I have a hard time completing the second pull (the phase from the knee until triple extension is complete). I am also a little slow with the third pull, which is to say that I don't get under the bar or lower myself to a receiving position very fast.
You can see all about that here; Clean

It's at least a little better with the snatch. In most of the videos, I seem to catch the tall or high hang snatches and the 'full' snatches right about parallel, which is better than my power clean into front squat phenomena.
I am also getting a better second pull done (i think). I look and feel a little slow though, but I think this has at least a little to do with the weight. Something a little heavier would force some more speed in the second and third pulls. Anyways, here's what I've been up to;

Lookin' good man! You look quite comfortable with your snatch.

If anything, I'd say work on keeping those arms from bending early, do some snatch deadlifts to position (the first pull was a little inconsistent, plus I've had good luck lately fixing problems with my 1st). Think about pushing your knees under the bar as it passes.

That's all I got. Now go let the cf boards have at it!
