timing and rhythm for pulls and hip extension

Hi,

timing and rhythm has never been my forte, and it turns out that's exactly what's going wrong during my first two pulls and the hip extension in the snatch or the clean.
Well, of course, there's more wrong than just that, but since the hip extension is so crucial, it's major.

So, I need to find my "hip extension flow" so I can groooove through the motions.

Do you have tips, queues, songs, "ooooone-twooooo-hip"-kinda-stuff, mnemotechnics, ... you use in your head (or even out loud) to get the rhythm of the first and second pull and the hip extension right?

Think of it as one movement, not 3. Don't focus on hip extension, focus on keeping the pull smooth.

Re: timing and rhythm for pulls and hip extension

Pull and lifts kind of go hand in hand.

If you pull ****ty, you probably lift ****ty.

If you lift ****ty, you probably pull ****ty too.

If you pull well and lift ****ty then there is a missing mechanic in your lifts.

If you lift well and pull ****ty...I dunno, never really seen this.

...it means you have the brute strength to muscle through the movement. Go in any football weight room while doing cleans and you'll see this haha
