On the jerk, you need to split longer and get the back foot flat thing fixed. Ideally, you should up on the ball of the foot.

You're obviously very strong and you're overpowering the bar until it gets too heavy to do that.
Thanks. Yeah my back right foot doesn't work at the moment like I want due to a pulled calf muscle from last Monday. Tried switching at practice during meet but didn't feel it.

My coach and I talked about my hips today in fact. I really never noticed how bad they were till the video. I'm practicing with them starting higher. It feels weird, as I was practicing today during our WOD, but I could tell my arms were bent less on my pulls.

Thanks again for help.
