Hi Hang Clean, thoughts please!

It felt good to me but maybe I'm missing something, thought I'd put it up here for you guys to tear apart. This was at 145#, my full clean PR is only 200#.
Thanks in advance.

The bar path says it all. You send the bar forward and you receive it forward. You need to get that bar path more vertical.

Lincoln - Thanks, is it normally harder to keep it close from a high hang?

No, easier because it starts close. You need to dip and drive straight up and down. The bar should brush your belly and pull your shirt up.

Re: Hi Hang Clean, thoughts please!

I agree with the other comment but another thing that I see is your foot positioning... It hurts me just to look at it! (no offense) not the greatest video angle to tell but your knees have to be crashing in with how your feet are pointed so laterally. Clean that up as well and you will prevent injury down the road and get stronger. your knees should track over your toes. Keep up the good work! -Russ Montague Michigan

Re: Hi Hang Clean, thoughts please!

What the other guys said you need to stay back on your heels dip with knees out laterally over feet to keep torso upright. A fix could be to lean back so that the bar is what's keeping you from falling backward. Dip with no forward movement of the torso drive hard shrug hard. It would be nice to see your catch and where your elbows are -post another vid. And point those feet forward!
