Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Well, to be more accurate, I'm CATCHING it much higher than is necessary; point being that there's plenty of power on the pull and the squat is the hardest part. (wfs ex....

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Hard to argue with that. It's hard to motivate myself to fix my pulling problems when the bar's still apexing a foot higher than my catch position. (Yes, more squats.) Guess everyone has their...

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Hmm. You're saying they manage to pull with arms slightly bent, but still locked (that is, rigid and transferring power)?

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

I am most confused. Is that Sage Burgener with an early arm bend?

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Really just work on imagining the bar as a stationary object, and you dropping under it without moving it.

I wonder if you could actually use an immobile bar for this... in a power rack or...

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

In one instant, you should be fully extended at knees, hips, ankles, and shoulders. This is the end of the second pull.

In the next instant, you should be off the ground, with your feet moving...

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Arden, this may or may not help, but you could give it a shot.

Your cleans seem to be predominantly hip involvement, which is contributing to the arcing, "cheat curl" nature of the movement. Try...

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

Very cool resource, Yoon. I'm used to doing frame-by-frame analysis to learn about form and I can't do that with YouTube.

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

The dynamic of the second pull: knees, hips, ankles. For some reason they don't include the shoulders here (I guess because it's technically flexion rather than extension); that would make it a...

Re: Clean and Squat Clean - I've got a long way to go

You're starting the bar too far forward. Your shins are angled forward sharply, which is putting the bar (as it rests against your shins) forward of the mid-foot. You seem to let it come backwards as...
