What's a good snatch...
weight for a newbie? I've only recently added snatches to my workouts and have wondered if I should go lighter until my technique is better, I started using 115lbs for reps.

well what i can describe is that a good snatch requires, a bar who has its bothe extremities rotating,good warming up, a good starting position, the back always curves, lift up the bat to the hip with relaxed arms until the drop to the hip, then pull the bar up with elbows always higher and when the elbows at max height start to get yourself under the bar... in the begining stary snatch without dropping on the hip, then, power snatch is good, and afterwards snatch in squatting is good.
all throughout the movement the bar must travel as close to the body as possible.

Are you inquiring as to technique or training load?

one that doesn't talk back and goes right to bed after abusing it

i dont know whether 2 or 3 times for you, but before starting to add load better have a good technique, this will prevent you from injury.
me i do it 5 times a week as im weightlifter.. the snatch is a good exercise, it works many muscle parts and is a dynamic exercise, so up to u to see whether 2x or 3 x

describe your snatch, from the floor or hanging position, do you stop like a power clean motion and then press or do you fling it up into the air and stop in an overhead squat position and then stand?

go light until you get form, but be careful when you up your weight . i tried 225 a few times and threw my back out on last rep

I did 40 reps with 100lbs with less then 30sec. every ten reps. My technique seems solid.
