That’s interesting about him doing lots of stiff legged DL’s to build his snatch. Comparing his more recent snatch videos to his older stuff (205 training lift) it looks like his technique has changed significantly. From a low hip, more quad dominant pull to the hips similar to the other Russians (and the way I was taught to snatch) to an almost exaggerated early loading of the heels (from his Italy videos). His technique now looks very different from the other Russian training videos he has put up (and his older style). I wonder if it’s due to injury, a conscious change, or just for a specific training effect.
