    Never power snatched before in my life. Even if I did though, I doubt I could do 225lbs.

    What constitutes a "power snatch"?

    A power-snatch. From ground to full lockout of extended arms.

    Youtube it for a more specific demonstration.

    And you don't squat to even parallel when catching.... probably 3/4 squat at best.

    I don't drop it either at my gym when I do any oly lift.
    I have to ask C4, you don't drop the weight when you do multiple reps, do you?

    Maybe with a few months practice? :dunno:

    If I were to try it right away... not a chance.

    in

    and yes the weight is dropped between each rep, but we try to 'lower' it in a controlled manner, dont want to ruin the weights/platforms unneccessarily

    edit - however when you are doing bodyweight+ O lifts, it starts to become extremely taxing/possibly dangerous to try to lower the weights.. well, maybe bodyweight+15kg or so you could hurt yourself trying to catch then lower

    Out. But that's the goal. 190 should be achievable, but I only started doing them like 4 months ago. I'm at a measly 115 right now.

    yeah, i hit 90kg at 74kg last week

    and i cant drop the weights at my gym, you get used to lowering it after a while, even when it gets heavy

    I'm close though. Just a inch or so from locking out. One day I really do have to post a vid so that Gogz, C4 or MP18 could give me pointers....
