Hi coach, I'm a 43yr old master and have recently switched to the split snatch, I exceeded my pr pretty quickly,but have stalled. I don't feel like I'm pulling the bar high enough. Do you have any advice to get bar higher? Thanks for you're time

its not about pulling the bar high.....its about driving the bar up with the legs and hips, getting speed on the bar then when the bar is going up, pull your body down!! its all about speed.....greater speed and then timing under the bar. when one pulls the bar up trying to get it higher the weight eventually cause this to stall....one must pass the bar.....as the bar goes up and is weightless the lifter goes down and around the bar!!!
