Power Clean - Starting Strength

This is not too bad. The bar needs to touch your body on the way up. Also, you need to be much more aggressive as opposed to lightly jumping the bar up. This aggression will probably develop as the weights go up.

Overall, pretty good.

Even though it's not 100% of the weight you could do, you have to treat it as such and put THAT much effort into it.

I got it. I am definitely not doing that...I will change that. Thanks for the input.

Re: Power Clean - Starting Strength

Aggression, yes. Bring the HEAT!!

Try taking the bar a little further up the leg before exploding. Other than that, looks good. You've got TONS of room to go up.
