14 days to go!

Today I got to simulate a competition environment. Warm up. 3 attempts at each lift with standard rest time between lifts (2 min).
Snatch = 117# (53kg), Miss (55kg), Miss (55kg)

    Looks to me like your rack position is a bit off. Elbows look a little high, which accounts for the bar ending up behind you on the jerk...

    Thanks Geoff... That's exactly what it is. I like my hands a bit narrower for the clean compared to the jerk, so I usually stand and jump my hands out and elbows down. I was so excited to finally stand up with the weight I forgot to do it. Ah well. I will take it!!
