Dear Burgener!

I love to watch your tutorials and practice your warmup every day. But I have a question about the snatch.

I grip the bar outside the outer markings and aim for a full tripple extension. This puts the bar in direct contact of my private parts. This prevents me from going "all in". What am I doing wrong? How wide should my grip be? Where should the bar hit the body?

the width of the grip is individual. the wider the grip the higher on the hip the bar BRUSHES...NOT BANGS! play around with the grip but remember not to BOUNCE/BANG THE BAR...but to brush it against that area.
