It’s important to keep your arms loose during the finish of your lifts! If you have the bad habit of early arm bend, here is the fix. You need to practice the range of motion that causes the issue.
Trouble catching a bar in the bottom position? If you get to the bottom, only to miss, it may be because you are too loose down there! Try to catch the lift at parallel.

Many people have a problem looping the bar while snatching. One way to fix this is to practice a high pull, then immediately follow it up with a full snatch.
