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.
