I'm sure other methods would work more. I just prefer simple, and it seems to achieve what I want.

As long as you’re getting something out of it. Those two moves are the bedrock of KB work. For me, I get bored. I like doing a lot of EMOM snatches if I only do one thing. I figured this lets me detach and just do what is written

I need someone to teach me to snatch. I can't figure it out.

I learned with the"pull/punch" method.

A good short video:

I 'get' it, but have all kinds of trouble actually doing it.

Yeah, It's a "grease the groove" pattern, and the grease is pain. It takes me a while to get it back if I lay off.

I just wrote a longer post in response to this but it disappeared.

What problems are you having?

Most common issues are the wrist banging, hand position, descent control, poor swing.

Steve Cotter had a couple of useful videos on the subject.

If your grip is a problem and your hands get beat up try using a glove like the following. The KB slips around making it easier on your skin but works the grip so you can still see gains with reps without ripping your hands.

If interested I can provide some progression workout examples to build on.

Wrist banging, I suppose. I mean I can clean fine, and I know not to pop it over the top, I just can't figure out how to roll it to the side properly when snatching.

I solved that with another drill.
Smooth insertion technique by initiating the snatch with one hand but inserting and catching with the opposite hand. See here:

Did I mention that you should be doing this with something very light. I practiced, and sometimes still do, certain skills with an 8kg. Once I’m good, I add weight. A big handle opening is necessary. Competition bells have them but some bells have very small openings making the insertion all but impossible.

Even if you can’t get it immediately and want to snatch, just use these until your technique smoothes out.

RE wrist bands. I have a 32kg, that ain't gonna help. I can practice with my daughters 8kg for sure.

32KG? Nope. Wristbands wont help.

If you are used to heavier weights, then a 16KG might be your best option for practicing form. Using a 32 to throw with one hand and catch with the other is a great way to destroy your shoulder and/or elbow.
