I'm still pretty new to the C&J but I'm looking for any useful advice.

As far as I know this is what I'm doing wrong:
- I'm jumping slightly forward under the bar (this doesn't happen when I lift lighter weights)
- Elbows are bending too early, not *quite* coming to full extension (any tips on this?)
- Hips raise slightly early? (I think I'm doing this to keep shoulders over the bar longer)
- Feet land slightly before the rack
- Am I squatting too deep?
- My jerk wasn't quite right, I pushed out the bar at the top while recovering

Thoughts?
Thanks in advance :-)
