Snatch pull-downs are great for refining your technique as well as building position specific strength.
They’re also interesting because they bring in the eccentric portion of the movement. This gives your muscles more time under tension as well as likely causes muscle damage resulting in a growth response (ie., bigger, stronger legs and postural muscles of the back over time).
Do 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps after your full snatches and/or cleans.

I will definitely try this out. I have done similar techniques to help improve the mind, body and barbell connection. My coach would have me do all these movements and did not like it. I just wanted to lift heavy stuff. I buckled down and I am more than happy to do these techniques. They really do help with snatch and cleans!
