I'd like you guys to pay attention to a few things during this lift.
First, the pick up: notice how the lifter stays over his bar, and doesnt begin to stand up/extend his torso upwards until the bar passes his knees. His back is in the same position at his knees as it was when the bar was on the floor.
Second, the bar path: his extension, shrug and pull. That bar could not be closer to his body. After passing the knee he begins to perform his triple extend; extending at the ankles, knees, and hips. Pause the video at .16sec and youll be able to get a good look at the peak of his extension and pull.
Third, His catch: He pulls himself below the bar, and locks out his arms overhead, "pushing his head through the window" as Mikee would say. You can see this at .26sec. Also observe the depth he gets in his squat snatch, this lifter has fantastic mobility.
Hope this helps you to understand the snatch a little better. Happy snatching
