Rob Gray is also a good person to try and mimic,

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Some great videos. I tried to focus on being relaxed this session. I have three major questions.

1. Am I hitting the bar at the right height with my hips during my clean?
2. How are my clean pulls?
3. How are my good mornings (id appreciate any feedback here especially)

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Hip cleaning is only for people that have the right levers for it. I think your arms are long enough that the bar should be contacting on the upper thigh on the clean.

Really, "the right height" is wherever the bar hits that gets you to full extension. Which you are doing a pretty good job of.

Oh okay, thanks. I really had no idea and was wondering.

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

No prob. My wingspan is something like half a foot more than my height, so I actually hit more mid-thigh. It's definitely an individual thing.

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 1, Day 4

- Power Snatch - 70% x 3 x 5
100x3x3
100x2x2 (Missed one snatch on one set, and one snatch was a full squat on another set)
- Snatch High-Pull - 70% (of sn) x 3 x 5
115.5x3x5
- Snatch Push Press + Overhead Squat - 70% (of sn or ohs) x 5+1 x 5
115.5x(5+1)x5 (I'm not used to dropping the bar back down on my back. It hurt on some reps, I hit one of my vertebrae a couple times).

Todays video. (NSFW, because I don't remember if I swore, and I don't have time to rewatch it)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skMiDODgdZQ



What I'm interested in specifically:
- How do I drop the bar on my back without it hurting?
- Is the bar placement right on my back during the Snatch Push Presses (Why I took my shirt off. I've been low barring for so long it hurts to but the bar in the HB position)
- Am I leaning too much backwards during my snatch high-pulls?

What I'm interested in specifically:
- How do I drop the bar on my back without it hurting? Keep doing what you're doing, it'll get better as you get used to it. Try and slow down a tad and control the lowering a bit more if you can. It's not a race to get the set done!!
- Is the bar placement right on my back during the Snatch Push Presses (Why I took my shirt off. I've been low barring for so long it hurts to but the bar in the HB position) Yes, bar position is fine
- Am I leaning too much backwards during my snatch high-pulls?Personally, I don't think so. However, I would caution about using the arms too much when doing the pulls, you don't want to be in a habit of using arms too much. Again, don't try and race through the set, let yourself get set for each rep and focus on that start position. There were a couple times where your hips are rising too fast because you're rushing through it.
Answers are above in bold to your question. I didn't sit through the entire vid, but watched a couple sets of each exercise. Biggest thing is not to rush, either through the set, or the start of the pull.

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 1, Day 5 - REST

Week 1, Day 6
Snatch - 60%x2, 70%x2, 80%x2, heavy single
110x(f) (OX)
115.5x2
132x(f) (OX)
145x(f) (Single)

Snatches were just forward today, I think I was slow as well, couldn't pull the bar back and over my head, and couldn't get under fast enough.

Clean & Jerk - 60%x2+1, 70%x2+1, 80%x2+1, heavy single
135x2+1
157.5x2+1
180x2+1
205x1 (Clean was forward, jerk was not deep enough. But I'll take it.)

Back Squat - 75% x 3 x 5
244x5x5 (Slow-ish, but no issues)

SLDL - 3x5
135x3x5 (First time doing these, it was kind of interesting)

3 sets; no rest:
20 push-ups
15 DB rows (Did them as bent-over rows)
Time: 4:06 (Used 25# DB's)

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFmgq5uKztI
(NSFW, An ad for psychedelic drug testing on the radio within the first 10 seconds. Typical classic rock radio station...)

___________

My questions:
1. Do the Stiff-legged DL's look okay?
2. Why did I miss the snatches so poorly? What can I do to fix them?

Yea, that seems to be a common thing amongst most of my videos, I really need to focus on it.

Time to get a real-life WL coach to take a look at you.
