Clean and Jerk Form



This is my clean and jerk from my first weightlifting comp(only a month and a half after i started training weightlifting lol,ik not smart but it was a very small local meet just for fun). Ended up totaling 150kg. What can i improve in my technique aside from squatting lower in the clean and in the jerk.


I prefer the head up in the pull.

Yes, learn to squat clean.


Also, if possible, when using video to evaluate technique, take it at an oblique angle, about half way between the side and the front. You likely have the pulling strength to clean 100-110 once you starting squatting under the bar.
