145KG hang snatch at 62KG at 19 y/o. When I showed this to a new online client, she instantly understood how to use her legs
She was always told to keep shoulders over the bar. The misrepresentation of that cue in her head (it wasn't even her technique problem) caused her to smash her hips into the bar. But kept her knees soft so no vertical, all horizontal
Watching this, she built her cue of, "Catch the hanging donut 🍩" which allowed the hard extension of the legs not the hips
If this helps anyone, drop me a PM and tell me whats your cue

The cue is NOT wrong. There is no such thing as a wrong cue. Its the interpretation and then the action that comes after that matters. If "kick a dead urchin" makes U lift right, its right!
