You are one of the most awkward pullers I’ve ever seen. With that being said, that form suits your proportions and strengths. The only thing I can find, and this is a grey zone, but try not to start your hips so low. You start your hips low, then the bar looks like it is stuck on the floor as your hips rise to an optimal range, then you break it off the floor once they’ve reached that optimal range. You might want to try that out AFTER your meet to see if it helps, but what you are doing isn’t exactly bad, even Ed Coan did that when he was forced to switch to conventional.
I think form checks this close to the meet is not that good of an idea though, you’ve picked your form, and you’ve been hammering it in. There’s no glaring issues at sub maximal weight, so you have to take it into the meet and see what you get.[/quote]
Thanks man! You’re right about the hips, but I have a tendency to pull SO high hipped this kind of stops that. But like you said, it suits me as a style. I just like to get ongoing feedback. The more eyes, the more perspectives that might catch something I’m missing.
The way it feels, the pull like this is midway between sumo and high hipped conventional, kind of with the best of both worlds.
