New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

i did these today specifically to practice not leaning backwards during the catch, as i had done in a previous vid i posted.

i felt like avoiding the lean made me short the jump and miss some extention, but the weights are light as well and i always seem to jump less with light loads...

Glenn Pendlay suggested i do squat cleans also to help prevent the lean, so those are here as well.

as always any and all feedback is greatfully accepted!

Re: New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

Check out Rips video about powercleans. In it he covers jumping too early/too late and it's effects. It looks to my completely untrained eye that you're jumping at the wrong time, and this is causing you to move backwards. Nice effort though!

And with the squat cleans it looks more like you're powercleaning, and then front squatting. You might try moving faster to get under the bar, instead of catching it then dropping.

But I'm not pro, not by a looong shot.

Re: New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

I think that is much improved from your last effort. The squat cleans will come more naturally the more you do them. Good job.

Re: New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

i agree that i am almost certainly jumping at the wrong time. just have not done these enough to be consistent yet.

the second pull (i believe) starts mid-thigh right?

as for the squat cleans ithink i am just power cleaning and then squating... it felt like the weight was to light....it pulled up high easy so i felt like a big pull/jump and a real aggressive pulldown into the squat would have had me catching overhead!
is that normal or am i crazy?

thanks!

Re: New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

Your not crazy.

These are much improved. Much, much improved.

Details will be better delt with as more weight gets on the bar... this is still light enough for you that you can get away with anything. Im going to guess that on a 165-175lb squat cleans things will get to the point where some of the smaller details will come into play.

Re: New and (hopefully) improved power cleans

SWEET!

thanks for looking out for me Glenn!

do i really need bumpers to try that kind of weight? the gym i go to is pretty open minded but i doubt they would be ok with me dropping their weights...at least not repeatedly...ah well

only one way to find out i suppose!
