      What is the proper foot position in receiving the catch on the Snatch and Cleans? 

      I’ve heard Kelly and Diane talk about keeping the feet straight. When I snatch or clean, my feet turn out on the catch, particularly the right. Any suggestions on correcting this fault? 
      Is foot turn out to some degree acceptable? Thanks!

      There is some variations depending on what you are performing straightish  7-11 degrees is the acceptable range.
      Diane has a great Oly lifting specific mobility piece on her Cody app Olympic Style Lifting Bundle.
      She also has a foot work program that may help identify why your turn out may be outside the acceptable range if it more than 11 degrees.

      Hitting  ankle, heel cords, foot mobility is a good idea.
      Are you warming up enough?
