Faults noticed: Feet jumping up and back, not explosive enough and slow in racking the bar.

Anything else that i have missed out or lacking?

P.S: Pardon the sudden change of video's alignment.

Set your low back better and sooner when lifting from the floor.

It looks like you're power cleaning it and then front squatting it. You'll have to get your butt under the bar much sooner for it to be a squat clean.

Appreciate the feedback. What abt the movement of the bar itself? Is it loopy? How do u fix the jumping back movement of my feet?

Mark the floor with some tape or something so you can see where your feet start and finish. The bar path is pretty vertical and close to your body (fromo the angle you have videod from its a little hard to tell). You aren't aggressive with your feet or elbows at all. This is a very quick explosive movement, even if you're only using the 20kg bar.

If you haven't checked it out, please order Coach Rippetoe's Starting Strength book. It will help you on every single barbell lift guaranteed.
