That's assuming a full (squat) clean, don't know how to do that with power clean.

Also, you could try starting your clean with wider grip in the first place. That's another thing they changed when I got to the team, my hands are now something like an inch away from the knurling marks.

(Which is something Brad suggested I try a few months ago, but we're not going to mention that )
Interesting.... My coach has me grip a little wider too actually on front squat as well. He says I should front squat at the same place I clean because that is the position I will be in coming out of the hole. I probably should grip a little wider than I do but my lack of external rotation in my elbows and shoulders is preventing that right now. Working on it though!
