Which set up is incorrect for the snatch?

Which set up is incorrect for the snatch?  This is a trick question.
They are all correct.
By looking at all these pictures the most important thing to note is that 1) the back is flat 2) there is a back angle.
These two factors predicate everything else.
The biggest difference between all of these athletes is the height of their hips. This is based on height and most importantly preference. When learning this movement early on it is important to experiment with different hip heights. What you are looking for is the moment in which your hamstrings come onto tension.  This is the moment in which your hamstrings are stretched with some contraction.
Happy Snatching!!
