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

Went again today, but not as good. I think I really need to back away and focus on a few things and continue on the path, then resend some links later on for thoughts and critique. If that makes...

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

Wow. Lincoln hits the nail on the head. I'm focusing more on pulling the weight high instead of pulling myself under.

I'm taking that one step at a time because I'm finally getting comfortable...

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

Wow....just wow. This is awesome. Thank you so much for all your time and effort. It's going to take me a while to digest all of it. But given my OCD nature, it will happen.

I'm going to train...

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

Okay, I recorded the cleans differently with the hope that Greg Everett will comment. :D

Today I did a lot of drill works. I did Starr's Drill (power clean, followed by tall clean, followed by...

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

The shoulders in front of the bar are one of the things I'm really going to drill the next few weeks.

After reading Newton's book, and Tommy Kono's book, and consulting with Randy Hauer, I'm...

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

I do have a coach - Randy Hauer. But he's 8 hours away and I send him videos and he critiques me. I've only been able to train with him once in the past 3 months. I went to a oly lifting workshop...

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

Thanks Charles. I hope to make some noise when I go for gusto tomorrow. But you make a very good point.

I've noticed that when I get close to 300 or over when I clean, I have a real hard time...

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

Charles,
gotcha. Those are awesome photos and thanks so much for attaching them. Basicly get myself into "the strong position." Knees bent, bar on upper thigh, shoulders in front of the bar,...

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

Gotcha.

Basicly, Wide elbows is, in essence, already part of the third pull or pulling your body under the bar or part of the descent.

I've got a lot to work on. If I wasn't so worn out, I'd...

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

Wilson,
You just made me realize that I'm not getting wide elbows at all. I've only been thinking about quick elbows. I think I've been missing an essential part of that 2nd pull. I know the...

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

Great Tip Susie!!!!

I'm far from getting it at this stage. I just want to get away from "doing power curls." Or I guess i want to get to where I can actually "power clean." :o

Thanks so much....

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

Thanks Dale,
You are absolutely correct, I'm not grasping the "jump under" or third pull at all. It's an apprehension thing for me.

I think I understand your slam ball drill. I think, for...

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

Thank you for confirming my thoughts. Should the bar brush against my body my upper thighs, alien, and chest? Or just be a heckuva lot closer than it is now?

All the best,
Arden

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

Charles, thanks so much!!!

I want to make sure I understand your comments.

In regards to starting with my hips higher, are you referring to my initial start position (from the floor), or my...

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

Did an hour and half walk with the misses and the inlaws to warm up for the weights. Before going on the walk, I rolled and stretched.

When we got back to the barn, started out with the Corrigon...

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

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

Okay, this was me trying to do some Tall cleans after doing my regular snatch workout. This was just to work on drills, form, etc. How am I doing?

The weights are 95, 135, 185, and 205. I'm not...

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

The difference between my pulling and recieving stance, at this stage, is varied. I go a little wider, but not much. Sometimes, I just sort of rotate my toes outward to receive in a toe pointing...

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

yeah, you're right about that.

However, I don't dare bring my good bar to the Y to let others abuse. If you know what I mean.

but would that have some impact on me doing my drills? If so, I...

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

Okay, I just had another session.

I did some silly kettlebell stuff before my cleans, so I was pretty spent going into it. I attempted "tall cleans" for my warms ups. Recorded them all. Went...
