Thursday's turning towards the light

I had another great technique session where I focused on my biggest weakness--my feet getting wider in the catch position. I got a lot of reps in the Snatch in particular and not every one is exactly what I want, but I can see some marginal progress. Here is what I did:

Overhead Squat--5x5
Band Pull Aparts--2x20
Hip flexibility
Drop Snatch--1x3@bar, 40, 40, 50 1x1@60, 65, 70, 75--I was able to keep my form with the heavier reps which was good.

Snatch--1x1@80, 80, 85, 85, 88, 90--I have posted a video below of my 90 Snatch, focusing on my feet. I am getting a slightly wider position in the catch. I will take it half inch by half inch. My reps were more consistent tonight and they did this with heavier weights, so I am happy now.

Jerk Skill with 60kg
Clean and Jerk--1x3@60 1x1@80, 90, 100, 110--These were fast, but Roy spotted that there was a slight lean forward in the dip portion of the Jerk. I obviously need to fill up the lungs a bit more and tighten up the trunk while keeping the elbows up.
