Coach,

While doing the snatch at heavier weights my feet fly out almost as wide as my hands on the bar but when I do lighter weight I can easily keep my feet centered under my hips. What can I do to focus on keeping my feet underneath me?

i would mark my feet on the platform. we do this all the time with athletes that have a tendency to move their feet too wide while receiving the bar. i use kids chalk. mark the feet where you want to receive the bar....focus on the feet while you are moving up...check the feet out each rep. you can also do this on the sn balance as well pwr snatches....one wants those feet to hit the same position 100% of the time.
