In the snatch and clean and jerk, timing is everything. You can be as strong as you want, but if your technique is off, you’ll be missing lifts.

Check out this video from Jared Enderton on fixing the bar path in the snatch and fixing the timing of your extension so you can get max power and keep the bar in the correct spot.

If this applies to you, slow down in the warm ups and in your practice today and work on timing. Fixing that will allow you to display your strength properly and move more weight!

I’d recommend checking out all of his videos and watching other high-level lifters. Some people learn best from watching others. Remember, not everyone has the same exact technique and not all great lifters perform the lifts with optimal technique. So if you see something you don’t understand, please ask a coach!
