Clean pulls and snatch pulls question
 
Am i supposed to be doing the pulls as if i were exactly doing a normal clean but bec its heavy i just cant get under it or am i supposed to just think about clean deadlifting it then hit it at the thighs and shrug?

In either one, you're supposed to be doing the pull as if you would do a normal clean or snatch. You simply don't go under the bar. But, you should do the pull to extension, up on toes and shrug up.

That's what I've been coached as well. There's a weight that you won't be able to put the proper hip action to float the bar up to your solar plexus... make sure you're below that.

HI , you don't get under the bar you need to pull yourself under the bar.

Its quite easy because as the barbell gets heavier gravity takes over and you can't pull the bar to that comfortable height you are accustom too.

So for each 1lb you add the barbell will be slighly lower and in the end you can't pull yourself under it.

Allot of people actually jump upwards to get under the bar rather than pushing/sliding their feet to the side which in turns also means you need to pull the barbell even higher and take the weight on the way down. A prime example is Dmitry Klokov, look at his feet.

2 good examples -
