1st slow down the first pull a bit, your back is rounded in the 2nd pull, you lose power as you can’t put power in to a bar with a rounded back
2nd keep the bar closer, you should NEVER JUMP FORWARDS from your ‘receive’ position on the Snatch or the Cleans. If you jump forwards you DID NOT KEEP THE BAR CLOSE, you BASHED IT OUT.
Good power but you need to control the 1st pull a bit, keep the hips and shoulders in sync.
Post up the heavier video of the Clean and we can see whats up.
I’ve caught myself a few times on the neck on Power Cleans…buts only about 5 out of 1000’s of lifts…
I noticed that I was rounded over too, which surprised me because I can pull nearly 500 with a straight back. That might explain though why I haven’t matched my best hang clean or hang snatch from the floor yet.
I haven’t noticed myself jumping forwards when I clean, but I’ve definitely noticed it in my snatch. That also probably explains why I keep losing snatches out in front of me.
I’ll try to get a new video tomorrow. Hopefully I can work in some of your cues. Thanks for the advice man, its been really helpful. You’re the one who got me to start my pulls from the floor. Now I’ve got a lot of work to do.
Yeah a video says a lot, a video of a failed lift tells more imo.
No probs Alec. I’ve been coached well from the Brians Big Book of weightlifting
Pulls from the floor are KEY to lifting big weights. Once you can do it properly you can forget them and do real pulls as you now have the correct bar path to do pulls.
It’s jus ta matter of keep working on it. It will take a a fair amount of sessions but I think it’ll take you about 2-3 sessions. Just focus on keeping your hips down, shoulders over the bar and doing it A TAD SLOWER.
Remember it’s hard to practice something new FAST, do it slower, get use to it, build your speed up, once you have it down then tear the f0cking bar up
PS love posting from work LOL
