Power cleans form check
 
Hey guys, i need some help on my form for power cleans, currently doing the SS program.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3OQBTrAdwc (wfs) (This weight is not my max, but a little bit lower than my max.)

I think i can feel that something is not right with my form, but i'm can't really find out why is my form not right.

Please critique my form, thanks alot. :)

You got no bumpers like me, which is a pain because when you get to start using the 45 plates starting position is not the same.

Back looks a little loose; keep your chest up more. Otherwise good job for a starter. I can't say much more because I've only been doing clean variants for two years.

If you haven't already, take a look at this clip. The jump and positions are explained very well towards the end. A majority is squat form, but not Rippetoe style. WFShttp://video.google.com/videoplay?do...81301858251744

It's good because you can join in like you're really there. What an interactive video!

Dan John is brilliant and he has produced a lot of decent reading material.
