Re: Chin in or look up to avoid being hit
I don't even think about that!! But I guess when you make a big rack its farther out than your chin.
my coach would tell me if I have to worry about hitting my chin - its because I'm pressing the bar, instead of throwing it with my body and jumping under.
And - DO NOT LOOK UP. ever. Much more difficult to get the bar back if you look up.
(note the avatar - 'didnt your coach ever tell you look straight ahead?' CLASSIC facepalm from my coach – if there was a visible thought bubble, it'd say "EVERY time she jerks!!"
