By birth and genetics both of my elbow joints only extend to about 150degrees, and not straight like an average person. Do you think that this affects my snatch technique because I do have problems in the snatch by receiving the bar foward periodicly?
Heres a link to a video George Asanidze who has a similar occurence in his right arm, but mine is abit more outstanding and in both arms.

i have had 2 or 3 lifters who have not been able to straighten their arms.....one must remember that in the weigh in's the athlete MUST show the referee's the arms or elbows in this case....he must show them that the elbows do not straighten. if they do that they then remind the referee;s prior to the lift that the elbow does not straighten. hope this helps
