#1

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.


#2

I prefer the head up in the pull.

Yes, learn to squat clean.


#3

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.
