Hi. I want to ask for members’ criticism on my power clean form. My main goal for incorporating this lift is to increase my power output relative to my strength for sports purposes, and not as a bridge to other olympic lifts. Been teaching myself using Mark Rippetoe’s videos.
I’m thinking I bend my elbows too early, but I’m not sure. Thanks for the help.
Note: Slo mo, second rep at 1:20
You’re a hair early on the pull, but for your goals you are easily adequate. 175 didn’t look like it’s enough weight to really show where your technique breakdowns will be. Try something at 90% of max if you want real adjustments.
However, if you’re only concerned about power, no need to adjust. Better technique will just make it easier, you’ll have to add more weight but you didn’t get stronger. It’s 6 one way half a dozen the other.
Also, he 2nd rep is at 1:40. You tricked me into 20 seconds of you screwing with your shorts. Very tricky.
