I'm a serious recreational lifter. I enjoy doing the power and Olympic lifts but find the over-head squat portion of the full snatch to be difficult. I can easily do the squat-clean and press with 185 but I find the full snatch difficult with even 115 lbs. I would like to know some good exercises and drills for helping me improve the full snatch. I appreciate any advice you can offer.

This could be due to shoulder stability - work your OH squats as much as you can, plus supplemental exercises like KB windmills and TGU will be of help as well.
