I sound like a broken record saying that on almost every clean video posted on here, but that's really the most common problem I see, whether on the boards here or at actual CF gyms I've been to.
Thanks for the advice, I'll work on it. I think when I had a mirror to look into at the globo gym I was better with my back angle on the first pull. But, now I'm trying to work on technique based on feel, rather than trying to watch myself in a mirror.
I've actually been wondering about that lately; would you recommend training with a mirror or try to fix things with feel and filming myself?
I know a coach is the best thing, but right now, it's kind of not an option. I will be taking advanced weightlifting at my college starting in Janurary though
Thanks again for all the feedback.
Just watched your vid. Thanks, that is comforting haha. I definetely have to put in alot more work to clean things up, but I'm sure I'll eventually get there. Yeah, my jerk is BAD lol. I never did any jerks at the glob gym because I didn't want to dump the weight from overhead :/
