Re: 205 Clean PR. What's good and what needs to improve?

Good video edit. I like seeing the quick attempts and then the slow mo at the end.

The two failures are because the weight is too far forward. You correct this enough to finish the lift the third time, but the weight is still a little forward, causing slight rounding of the lumbar. Take that correction and push it a little further - bring the bar back an inch or two more. Pull up AND BACK a bit more at your full extension, so the bar will travel back to meet you. Be more aggressive about getting under it. Ideally, when you receive the bar on the shoulders it will be directly over your heels below. You'll feel a little pressure or choking on the wind pipe.

Re: 205 Clean PR. What's good and what needs to improve?

Thanks. Yeah I always know when the bar is too forward. I knew that was a big reason why I missed the two. I sometime feel though if I bring it way back, that the bar will end up falling over me. I noticed when people get to the full extension, theyre somewhat looking up, and when I think of that, Like I said I feel like ill pull the bar way to far back, and over myself causing me to fall backward. Of course though this is a PR so it was tougher.But ill definitely try to fix everything you pointed out. Thank you

Developing confidence at lower weights will help when you're at PR weights. Good backward pull + aggressive receiving = won't fall over.

Check out this beautiful clean. He receives the bar with great lumbar support - not pulling forward or rounding the back. I wish I could always be this good.

Re: 205 Clean PR. What's good and what needs to improve?

I do not think that this is a problem caused by you not pulling the bar enough back rather than you being pulled by the bar too much forward. Try to have your weight back just a little bit more (weight during that jump a bit less on the toes and more on the foot; catch it on your heels) and see how that works.
In addition to that, keep your knees out (they roll in a little bit at 0:28-29) and have a look for your left elbow, which seems to be a fraction lower than your right one (0:29 onwards).

Overall, this is a pretty nice clean. Congratulations and keep working on it.

Re: 205 Clean PR. What's good and what needs to improve?

I think the other guys have it covered on your critiquing. Make sure to keep the bar in close at all times, a neutral head, and practise the landing position on your heels.
Also another thing that was not mentioned was the front squat. You should practise your front squat as this will help you lift the weight up once you rack it as well as help improve keeping the weight on your heels. Don't be afraid of setting up a lighter weight and going down into the front squat and hanging out for a few seconds to get the feel of it on your heels and where your body and the bar need to be when you catch the bar in the clean.
Other than that great work!
Keep it up!
