All is all, pretty good, but there are 3 things that stood out to me. 1) Keep your butt down on the start. Do not let it shoot up because it unloads the legs and you are stuck lifting with your back. 2) Keep the bar close, and do not let it swing out. 3) You MUST stay tight when you receive the weight in the bottom position. You rounded your back and let your shoulders internally rotate. Keep your chest up, externally rotate your shoulders ("show me your armpits"), and control the bar, do not let it control you.

Thanks for the great information and taking time out to help the community. Would lots of snatch deadlifts and 3 position snatches help with keeping the butt down?
