260x1, 265x0x2 Clean Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XKL9RBm_fQ

What I see...

260- Made the lift for a 5 lb PR so can't be too negative about things, but I feel like I need to be pulling the bar higher before I jump. I'm not all the way extended when I go to pull underneath here.

265- Just slow, both times...No reason at all why I should have missed here, particularly on the first attempt.

As always any comments are appreciated.

Not an expert or anything but it's pretty clear the bar is coming very far away from you in the power position. The bar should be in contact with your thighs on the power position.

See attached. It's like a good 6 inches away.

I went and watched the lift a few times frame by frame and pretty much came to the same conclusion.

To see it sitting there in still frame though, just ugly...

I've gotten a lot better recently at keeping the bar close with the snatch by deadlifting a lighter weight up above my knee, pausing and then finishing the pull underneath as demonstrated here in this video.

Will look to do the same drill to improve on the clean.

Thanks for the feedback.

Shane, don't think about pulling the bar higher. Think about getting under it faster. That is the essence of weightlifting.

Good job on the PR, by the way.

Strong work. From my view, you are hitting your second pull too early. As you scoop underneath the bar, your thighs bump the bar out from your body, which makes you short your pull since you would miss the lift if you took the extra time to get to full extension. To me it usually feels like trying to jump and running into a brick wall.

Wait to jump until the bar is higher on your thigh. You should feel like the bar stays closer and your jump is faster.

Re: 260x1, 265x0x2 Clean Video

On the first lift, the lift you made, you aren't coming anywhere close to full extension and you're kicking the bar forward. On the lifts you missed I think the same thing is happening but it's hard to tell from that angle. The lack of acceleration through the end of the second pull could very well be from a failure to finish the extension.

As Peter said, you need to stay with the second pull until you finish the extension. Brush the bar along the thighs instead of banging it against one point.

Your not finishing your second pull. Start from the power position and practice extending straight up with the hips and knees(ankles will rise due to momentum hence triple extension). Do that in your warmups and you will develop good habits.

The closer the bar is to your body, the easier the lift will be.

^^THIS. The extension problem jumped out at me. You have to get those hips all the way open. Compare the image below to the one that Shane snapped of you. HUGE difference.

I agree with what is stated above, but also, do some of yall think his hands are a bit far apart causing him to maybe have some balancing issues with the bar in the rack position? I mean the elbows are pointed at the floor.....?

Compared to this. (wfs)

The elbows looked fine in the lift he made, so I suspect the shot you posted is a side effect of him trying to chase a bar that's too far in front rather than an actual problem with the rack position.

From my own experience, moving the hands further apart (within reason) makes it easier to rack the bar, not harder.
