Hmm. That’s a good question. Curious to know what the experts think but I usually complete the clean all the way to a dead stop across the shoulders and then drop it. Hawkson are you actually catching the bar at the top or are you just powering it up like a high shrug and then just letting it drop back down immediately?[/quote]
True Olympic Lifters Pull the bar to just above their waste then drop underneath it. You have to have tremendous explosive strength and flexibility to perform an olympic lift correctly.
My suggestion is to pull the bar to the midline of your chest and then drop underneath it. Finishing in a quarter squat position. Rack the bar in the front squat position with your elbows pointed straight ahead and the bar resting on your shoulders.
You may have to perform some flexibility exercises for your shoulder girdle and forearms in order to get the correct form.
