Nicely executed power clean Adam, your feet were flat on floor ,back was at a good angle ,you kept bar close to body hip engagement was on, wrist turnover and rack was all good. You’ve been practicing. The other videos are set to private so I can’t comment. I suspect the others will look good to.

Thanks, OPG.  I feel like I have a tendency to try and generate momentum from the floor - I suppose because I’m not really sure where the second pull is supposed to begin.  Is there a general rule of thumb or cue?  I suppose working hang cleans could help resolve this, but again my issue would be how low the bar is supposed to hang in the starting position. 

Also, I think I fixed the privacy issue. If you have a chance to take a look at the squat cleans, I’d be interested in your thoughts.

Since you were lifting a light weight, Some of the force was generated from floor using back, But your legs looked like they were main drivers. Since we all have different builds i’e length of arms, short torso vs. long. short femurs vs. long. you get the idea. It will not be same on every one. lifter should Position ones hand wider or narrower, this will help get in right position. Its Something one has to experiment with for there individual pull to be optimized. You will want the bar to be near the Hip joint on second pull to optimize the momentum from the scoop or hips coming forward and start of shrug, keeping arms hanging straight. I put up a slow motion study of my Clean and Jerk in movie section, I posted it this morning. Watch my transition point to 2nd pull. that will give you an idea.

I just watched you power cleans, They showed good form also, Your hip thrust on 2nd pull will become more pronounced with time, but overall they were good lifts keeping the bart in tight to body, Minimizing loss of energy from point A to B. Good work.

Just watched your Squat cleans ,Its obvious you’ve been doing this a while or your a very quick study and very flexible guy. You demonstrate excellent form on this discipline. I can’t find any issues with your form. Great work

Thanks - I’ve been following the mainsite wods (as scaled here) pretty regularly for about a year now. I work out by myself, though, so to have someone with some actual experience/qualification take some time to look at what I’m doing is great.  To hear essentially “keep doing what you’re doing” is gravy.  Now to work on increasing my loads…. bigsmile

Glad to help, I would agree that an increase in weight is called for. Best wishes
