I come from /hbg/ lads.

I am reading through the paste bin on both Starett's and a few other's tutorials on the power clean.

Other than some drills such as hip cleaning, cleaning light to work on technique, and going from different starting positions, are there things that can be done for drills?

I am jumping fine, but I am not engaging as I should be on the shrug portion, and feel like I could be pulling higher.

Who are the more definitive authorities on power cleans?

Purposely pulling slow is old school. Ripping it off the floor is dumb. Your initial effort should be fast and even faster during extension.
People often mistake that elite lifters are doing slow pulls but they are not doing this purposely.
Its a waste of energy and time.

>>35698769
Elaborate
>>
>>35698814
theyre slow because its fucking heavy
>>
>>35699041
I'm not sure what he means by "Ripping it off the floor"

Does that mean starting the pull fast or pulling with bent arms?
>>
>>35698769
Noone disputed that. We all said that slowing down a ripped pull isnt the same as purposefully pulling 'slow'

The only way to see relating to last thread would be if the guy posted a video. To lose 30kg just cos of a slower pull is not right. I'd put money on his coach slowing his pull not to have an old fashioned 'slow pull' but just to stop him ripping it from the floor and have a more even stable pull to setup the rest of the lift
>>
>>35699177
Pulling at a million miles an hour, with no proper balance or positions, and meaning there no acceleration above the knee I'd guess.

hey guys, I hate to bother you but from experience this is the best place to get actual advice on /fit/

I have chronic shoulder impingement issues for a few years already. I changed and adapted my training many times and was rewarded with at times no noticeable shoulder problems. I even tried some mobility drills. but the restrictions are very annoying, I can't even do OHP, and the shoulder issues have been getting worse again recently

I have joint hypermobility so I have always dealt with shoulder instability. but my overall shoulder mobility is not that good, party because I don't want to further destabilize my shoulders (it's worse in my left and more mobile shoulder) and because I have been slacking with mobility in the past

do you have any advice what I could do against this chronic shoulder impingement? any personal experience with it?
>>
>>35706614
see a chiropractor , tell him what you told us
>>
>>35706903
I once went to one, was a complete waste of time

what I got was "stop with weightlifting" but obviously I am not willing to do this. he also told me to go to a sports physician

since my gym offers them for free I did so but while being much more competent with diagnosis and being able to immediately recognize all my problems he didn't offer any solutions except for nonsense like "stop with this extreme bodybuilding" and "there is nothing you can do about it"
>>
>>35707254
let me tell here that I do not feel any pain (except very minor during some movements that I obviously avoid and only after I have been training hard for prolonged time). I've been able to live with it the past few years and will be able to continue with this. and if necessary, I have one of the world's best orthopaedic clinics nearby that both my parents already went to

but for now what has given me the best result is adaptation. and therefore before I do anything else I first want to try more on my own

What's your posture like? When you stand up straight, are your shoulders neutral or rotated forward? Do you sit up straight, or hunch over your computer? Focus on keeping a neutral shoulder in whatever you do.

hunch a little bit

>>35707559
how can I tell if it's a torn labrum? I feel it, especially on left side, when I extend my arm sideways and move it up. pain starts slightly below parallel. I also feel it when I touch my other shoulder and touch my forehead with the elbow or when I move my elbow as far back as possible at 80-90° angle (similar to bench)

sup owg.
i dont have really good proportions, legs are average but i have short torso + relatively long arms, so as a 5'7 manlet i have to grip the bar more than 1 thumb out of the rings.
tried today and i snatched my max after a brutal session where i did s fuckton of jerks (something like a 100 jerks with around 75% and even a set of 4 with my 90%, which i guess in not my 90% anymore).
it felt kinda awkward in the overhead with such a wide grip but i can probably do more this way.
should i bother doing snatches with such a wide grip ? i cant drive my hips into the bar otherwise

but she gave me the cell phone number of the guy who runs the weightlifting hall in my ymca here, so i'll give him a call and probably get my mommy/daddy for pay for him to coach me and let me use the facility with actual bumpers/racks

in the meantime i'm just squatting. she couldn't really give me a definite answer so i'm just squatting and push pressing for this workout and probably the next few

lower the weight on the rows, you're cheating them hardddd, you shouldnt be using your legs, just pull towardsyou w/ arms and upper back. no more of this pushing up with legs and hitching your body towards the bar.

for PP doesnt look that bad for beginner, make sure you arent rebending knees, it should be a full extension up not a push,catch,pressout

also do u not have anyyyy access to pc??
>>
>>35712810
some people believe in cheating rows, e.g. glenn pendlay/mark rippetoe (i dont agree with much of anything rip says tho desu). I felt it a lot im my hamstrings and had fun doing them. Maybe theyre a good excercise to kill two birds with one stone? Bit if hamstrings, bit of back?

Maybe it's okay to cheat, but I am cheating too much?

and to me it doesnt look like i'm hitching my body to the bar, i'm opening my hips, am i not? not tryimg to d3fend my cheatijg. sorry.

and i have a pc, i just dont really use it. i use it for vidya sometimes and that's about it

Just finished 10s, less the classics this Saturday. Pretty beat up, honestly. Sitting here with some ice on my hip. Gonna use the same weights from this week for the first week of 5s as a deload. Feeling strong, though. Have gained about 2-3lbs over the past 3 weeks.

Just make sure you're loading up your hamstrings and glutes before you pull upwards. You need to feel it in these muscles NOT your lower back. If you're feeling any pain or discomfort in your lower back you're doing it wrong.

Might want to try an alternating grip too, one hand forward one hand facing back. You won't need it for lifting light but it's probably good to start the habit early on.

What if I feel discomfort in my upper back? I'm another anon.
There's this uncomfortable feeling after I finish the deadlift, and when I stand up straight after the last repetition, theres this heavy crack in my back sometimes and I can't move or breathe normally either for the next five seconds.

I feel like this might have something to do with me not warming up enough. I'm doing stretches for 10 minutes beforehand, and then three sets of 7 with 50-70% of the final workout weight.

I do the hepburn routine, so 8x2-3 and 3x6-8

Gif related was me 1 or 2 months ago. I fixed a bit since then but the upper back discomfort _after_ the lift (5 seconds) is still there.
Tried keeping the bar closer to me, activating my glutes and hamstrings even more and worked a bit on my shoulder positioning

And of course the non-existing lockout

never stretch before workout, always after and only if you have mobility problems and generally with resistance. there is a reason our mobility is naturally limited. an increase in mobility always leads to a decline in strength and stability, like with a spring that gets weaker if you stretch it. and the reason why you only want to dynamically stretch with resistance is because that way you will build strength at the newly acquired range of motion and it will help reduce the loss of strength and stability

your routine looks questional to me. you look dyel so why do you pick such a fancy routine? just do 3x5 or something equally simple

push the bar towards you. what you do now is first you extend your legs and then you extend your torso and then you do a good morning. what you want to do is extend your torso and legs simultaneously and push back so that the weight slides along your legs. then controlledly drop the weight. putting the weight down slowly, especially in a good morning fashion, is a major back killer

regarding your upper back discomfort, there could be so many reasons for it you have to find out on your own. it is only problematic if it hasn't lessened over time as you got used to deadlifts. there are two things that come to mind. first, you deadlift too heavy and don't drop the weight. generally you should avoid going below 4-5 reps on the deadlift except if you plan to peak for a competition. also don't do so many sets. second, your upper back is too weak. train your rear delts, lalts, traps and so on. if neither help, go to a doctor

while keeping a lot of tension on most of my body, shoulders are an exception. I "keep them hanging". but my entire back is extremely well developed and I still feel it in my traps afterwards. so try this too. keep your shoulders loose so the scapula can move into a natural position. scapula could be involved in your problems so try out different positions and see what makes it worse or better

But what about all the gifs of olympic weightlifters stretching their shit before doing heavy sets?

>>35716348
>your routine looks questional to me.
I couldn't make progress with 5x5 anymore. The hepburn routine is simple. It's literally just two excercises, but I add lateral raises, shrugs and dips because of genetic insertion deficiencies.

>generally you should avoid going below 4-5 reps on the deadlift
That makes no sense to me

>your upper back is too weak. train your rear delts, lalts, traps
That can't be it

I guess it might be dropping of the weight, which is do too slowly because I live in an appartment complex.
I also, as I mentioned before, feel like I'm not harassing my shins enough with the bar, so I will try to keep it closer to my body in general.

Thank you for the input

Watching catalyst vids today. They had a chick do emom snatches, 3 singles at each weight, two misses in a row then stop, apparently good for her consitantcy and confidence

Seems legit? I tend to trust Everett and this sounds like a work out I'd enjoy.
>>
>>35717962
Not stretching before is a meme. Literally every top level lift will do atleast a tiny bit of static stretching before lifting. Maybe if your hyper mobile all you have to do is get warm but everyone else even top tier lifters will stretch

The key is the distinguish between stretching to help your body within its range of motion or stretching to increase your rom. The latter should be done separately from lifting.

Might be a confidence thing. Getting under heavy weight can be spooky, and if you go into a heavy set thinking it's too heavy, you're just not going to lift it. Your snatch suggests you should be able to do at least 135kg.

that's what warmup sets are for, where you can get your entire ROM ready

for oly lifting this is different because mobility is much more important there. but he was talking about deadlift, which is not oly and you need almost no mobility for it

show me a top tier deadlifter who does static stretching before

>>35717962
>That makes no sense to me
deadlift is a very taxing exercise. if you go too heavy, you will just hurt your body and progression in the long run, peak and then plateau or even decline

but hey, it's fine if you don't take my feedback to heart. everyone has different body and different preferences. but deadlift is where I excel at so clearly I must be doing something right when I am slowly closing in on the 300kg 1RM mark

How can he not have confidence when he snatches 2 plates. I don't know about you but I feel way more fear doing the classics than doing heavy ass squats.
>>
>>35721884

Different people are spooked by different things. I was plateaued on squats for months before I realized the problem was all mental. Once I was able to properly prepare myself for the heavy sets I started progressing again.

Then again, his cj is pretty low relative to his snatch. If the limiting factor is the clean, then a mechanical inefficiency might be to blame. He was also asking about weak glutes in the bottom position. It's really hard to say, given the brief acquaintance, but 'strengthen your posterior chain' is pretty vague advice, and should be done regardless.
>>
>>35722305

The limiting factor is his leg strength. Those lifts with such a low back squat is pretty fucking good, so rather than dick about with perfecting form just eat and squat and the lifts will shoot up.
>>
>>35715285

Play with snatch grip deadlifts -- and starting with your hips at varying heights -- to feel how all your muscles contribute to the movement. When you tighten up before the rep, it's helpful to imagine sitting back in such a way that you might fall if you weren't holding onto the bar.

But >>35716138 is right just keep on practicing and filming for a few weeks. You'll solve most of your own problems.

Those shoes look awful though, like you're standing on those silicon wrist-rests that go in front of computer keyboards. Consider deadlifting in socks.

hey guys please form check my squats. do i go down to hard? too much winkage of the butt? i felt pretty good when i was doing these but id like to know if i need to fix anything before i try hitting 4pl8 esquatito and snapping my shit up
>>
>>35722457
>just eat and squat and the lifts will shoot up.
i think this may be the answer.

i did a Russian Squat cycle and PRd on all my lifts. this was during the summer when i was just working (easy job), training, sleeping, and eating. recovery was on point.

I took a week or two off (still lifting, just not squating as heavy) as deload, and started another cycle. i wasn't able to pr in the squat after that, although i did pr snatch.

school definitely got in the way, though. i'm an architecture student, so i had to forgo sleep often. that definitely affected recovery.

>>35719866
i don't think it's a confidence issue. i will readily dive under a heavy ass clean without hesitating. it's no matter, though, if i cannot bounce out of it.

-

then, should I just keep trying to do the RSR? or should i look for a new program? I enjoy the RSR, don't get me wrong, but it's pretty demanding in terms of recovery. i'm a student, so it's hard to commit fully.
>>
>>35723575
yah, a little too much winkage for my liking.

stretch your hips and glutes. if winkage continues, just stop slightly short, imo.
>>

Why the fucking pop at the end?
>>
>>35723575
Now try doing it without the rests.
>>
>>35724233
habit? helps me get it into a better position for the jerk, i think
>>
>>35723992
Well I lift in a commercial gym that has bumper plates and the PT and some of the staff there are OK with dropping the weights and what not as long as it's the bumper plates and that it is done in the "squat area". So I'm very lucky to be in a situation like that in a commercial gym despite nearly getting kicked out and losing my membership because some lady working out in the gym complained about me dropping weights.

In the end, what I'm trying to say is that from my experience it all depends on the owner/staff of the specific gym for commercial gyms because even if the different gyms are of the same franchise some maybe more relaxed or stricter than others in general or with following the franchise's policy. For example, I went to another gym that was part of the same franchise as the one I normally go to and that one didn't allow dropping of weights at all even with bumper plates.
>>
>>35724250
You mean the press. I feel like its wasted energy trying to force a pop other than just a smooth front squat.
>>
>>35724243
if you dont take a moment to breathe between sets youre going to either pass out or compromise your ab tightness and fuck your lower back up. nobody just does squats without a short rest at the top unless its baby weight
>>
>>35724271
no, i mean the jerk... ?

might be slightly wasted energy. but it's worth wasting if it helps me get into a better jerk position.

of course, not standing into a ready position might be a technical error.
>>
>>35719886
it seems like his contact with the bar is significantly further down his thighs than at the hip crease; anyone tried emulating this? i've been learning to snatch and i feel better with contact lower down and seeing yarkins lifts says to me that ultimately your strength, speed and repetitiveness is most important, at least up to intermediate levels; and i shouldnt worry about trying to look as smooth as lu, thoughts?

So I finally finished my 20 week powerlifting training, taking a fuck load of time off and I'm dedicating alot of it to working harder on oly, thought specifically on the clean, and if i can fix that up some I might spend some time giving my jerk some TLC.

so i spent the last week messing around with c&j, and i've been watching those torikhty videos over and over and over and trying to make connections with all the points he mentions in them, and i think a handful of the things you guys pointed out to me in the past have revealed themself to me.

This is what it looks like currently, and There's three HUGE things I see wrong with it.

1) back angle - back doesn't stay same angle throughout

2) starting position - I honestly am not sure what the starting position should be right now (i thought I did). I've been given advice that knee should start in front of the bar, and then come back simultaneously with hips to get into the position that i'm "trying" to get into (hips & knees back). is this true? is it more of a grey area?

on this same topic, i really understand why people told me previously to practice starting upright, then descending into the starting position. i felt a tightness i didn't know existed and realized a ton of mobility issues that i never noticed previously. any clarification between this point and the other point of #2 would be much appreciated.

3) most prominent - i'm not pulling through with my arms. Just today actually, i realized why every one told me muscle snatches and why/what torikhty was saying in his vids about them. I DIRELY need to drill it into my head to pull through instead of trying to front delt raise this shit.

my intuition tells me: FUCK loads of muscle snatches / cleans with the primary cue of hard internal rotation to keep the elbows up, but i would greatly appreciate any information on how to remedy this concept - I'm certain most of what i need to hear has been said to me before, but i'm afraid I just needed to hear it -> do it -> hear it again

also very welcome to any other criticisms if I could get them, please and thank you.

There will be a few more webm's incoming of trying to fix torso and starting position.
>>
>>35726287
so I didn't record any of the "muscle snatches" I did today, but I did a shit load of them, then when i was in the middle of cleaning it came to me why it was being suggested as so important. So i did some more, forgot to record them.

Webm attached is my first time trying to feel out the bar path and where my hips are supposed to go. again, the big things are
>torso angle changing when its not supposed to
>not pulling through
>start position a shit

at least, in my limited understanding these are the biggest issues
>>
>>35726327
and last one so as to not shit up thread, second attempt doing the slow stuff.

same as before really.


Just looking for advice for what to do to correct these issues

I assume:
>lots of slow bar only work stuff
>muscle snatches / cleans / clean pulls
>work on descending into the starting position to try and get it right

I could be very off thoguh and would love feedback.

Thanks, and /endspam

after writing everything I did, thinking about it and watching both of these again its embarrassingly apparent that I don't pull through at all and my hips are throwing the weight out in front of me.

jesus this is atrocious
>>
>>35726287
>>35726327
>>35726337

you need to do no contact cleans/snatches in addition to muscle versions do those no contact as well for now, don't lean back and thrust your hips like you're doing to get the bar up, PUSH DOWN WITH THE LEGS

you're not using your legs at all just using your back and hip bumping the bar to get it up

the back angle isn't so bad, you're maintaining good positions, you can maybe try lowering your hips down so your torso is more upright in the start, but that's not a bad start position either

focus on using your legs for now and finish straight

>>35726438

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnTUVXq_ykI

notice how he doesn't throw his hips forward and how he finishes tall, you should do that
>>
>>35726358
your arms are doing too much. as you can see it isn't a problem when the weight is light, but as you get heavier your arms cant possibly do what your legs and back can do.

i guess it would help right now if you don't try to be so explosive with light weights. slow it down, think about what youre doing
>>
>>35726337
>>35726438

i forgot to mention bringing your hips down in the start would actually help in feeling your legs pushing down

can you upload this but 40 times slower

the biggest thing is the fucking swing holy shit

you're overdriving with your hips and pushing the bar with them instead of extending them straight up and using the power from the extending hips and the pull from your traps to bring the bar up

don't take a video of what you're doing alone because you don't know really know what you need to do
instead take a video and put it into a bar path app and compare it to what it should be

>>
>>35726358
Don't think about getting hips to bar. Think about getting bar to mid thigh in clean (hip in snatch) and tbink of extending as just 'standing up hard' don't worry about what the hips do at this point, if its a no contact clean, fine, that will come as you learn to keep the bar close

'Push the floor away with legs' helps sometimes too

Jumping is good as a cue. It's different from person to person. For me jumping slightly and stamping with my feet feels good and I feel like I am more successful in my lifts when I do it. I don't understand why so many people shit on the jump and stamp cues.
>>
>>35729754
Because for many new lifters they just try to make a stamping sound by picking their feet up higher... That isnt good. Like Everett says in his book, the noise should be a product of forceful replacement of the feet while keeping them close to the platform as possible, not from elevation of the feet

Been doing weightlifting a few weeks now

My overhead squat and snatch is fine mobility/flexibility-wise barring a little bit of wrist pain on my right hand that goes away after a couple sets

My Clean is still piss poor though because of my shit rack mobility ;_;
>>
family I went to the weightlifting club fuck so hyped man i did an overhead squat and back squats/press, the coach told me to. they were very impressed with my technique and mobility. i then did 50kg ~5x5-6 paused back squat, presses before with just 30kg for like 3x6, then I did romanian deadlifts (my coach taught me oly style RDLs with no lockout) and then bent over rows, both of those killed my lower back with fatigue. so excited m8. going back tuesday and i'm going to be training saturday, tuesday thursday with a legit coach and going to become an OWA member probably and go to comps. you don't even fucking know how excited I am, fugg. and it only costs $60 a month, and he's flexible in the payment.

;;;((((

come on no buly :((:(:(:(:(:(:(::( kvkbkjejejejene

it's probably because i never gained any weight, and i often did some pretty stupid stuff in training, using more weight than i should of and just grinding out sets of not even 4 or 5 reps, i'm just not built for lifting that heavy all the time and I just burnt myself out and did more harm than good

e.g. i'd go for 185lbs on back squat, get 2 reps, then next time i lifted i'd load that up and just fucking fail, because i wanted to use big weights so soon, i let my ego get the best of me i presume and just cursed myself to forever lift babyweight

yeah, i'm finally tracking calories again since i actully 2ant to fucking suceed and i'm seriously dedicating myself to suceeding in this sport. aiming for a min of 3K kcal a day, i get there most days. i'm skimping a little on protein, i eat a fuckton of carbs, but i think total calories > protein, i should really get both though, but i'm not doing too bad on the protein.

i gained a few pounds sinfe tracking foor again, but i can gaurantee it's all water weight.. i weighed in at almost 170lbs one morning and today i weighed in at 75.5 kilo. I plan to get to at least 77.5kg by the end of winter I think, I would like to be able to say I'm 80kg tbqh. I'll probably cut sometime come summer, if i'm not too fat i may not though. I plan for it to be a quick cut anyway, maybe just 2 weeks of a PSMF. but i'm getting ahead of myself. for now it's lift, eat, recover, stretch, and learn/get taught technique.

So I am going to hop on 70s big transition.

I am going to run TM for squats (I'm thinking I'll make my light day a front squat day).

Would running TM on bench fuck me over for my two Oly days?
This is what I am thinking (asterisks are what I am adding)

Monday
Snatch
Clean and Jerk
Bench* volume

Tuesday
Back squat volume
Press (Push press instead?)**
Rows (Clean or snatch pulls instead?)**

Thursday
Snatch
Clean and Jerk
Front squat heavy triples*

Friday
Back squat* TM 5 RM
Bench* TM 5 RM
RDL

I will likely throw in some weighted dips and weighted chins/pulls as accessories. Going to do that by feeling

I think the benching may be a bad idea, but I like the idea of having a strong bench. I may just drop it and try to compensate with accessories.

Please help.me fix this up.

Instead of pushing the bar forward with the hips, propel it upwards, then shrug the bar instead of curling it (you need to place elbows under the bar FAST but after you shrug the bar). Your hips need to go back as soon as you made the explosive second pull. Have a mental image of bar going up in a perfect straight line, and whatever force you apply to the bar, try to exert it strictly upwards.

When I started I imagined the jump backwards as if you are trying to do the backflip, with the full extension. The second pull (where you get bar from hips to the shoulders rack) is a movement similar to that.

I practiced for ~2 hours (until i started noticing mental burnout and no more returns for time spent) today and I think I made some VERY significant gains in understanding and developing the skills necessary. I'm going to make a short(ish) youtube vid depicting the process I did today in case any of you cares enough to give me some more guidance, which would be great appreciated as well.

Thanks again m8s. I seriously appreciate the patience you all show me

you two fucking shitstains. I can one-hand snatch more than you bitches clean and jerk together. Your biggest accomplishment this year is bullying a girl in the internet. Go practice with a pvc pipe and don't return to owg until you can at least your bodyweight fucking curlbros

>>
>>35715496
actually thats not true.
its better to start and go as far as you can using double overhand, rather than mixed grip.
mixed grip, especially when used for prolonged periods of time with heavier and heavier loads can/may lead to muscle imbalances in the posterior and upper-back muscles. one thing leads to another and may cause more severe injuries. in anycase, your advice has premise, but then again id suggest going as far as you can with double overhand.

I do oly in a normal gym. I do not drop the bar though. I always put it down gracefully. And before I even started doing oly in a usual gym, I already had solid technique to be 99% sure not to drop the bar on the floor. I train for over a year and dropped the bar maybe 5 times max, 4 of those from the snatch, and only one from the big height of CJ.

Other question is whether the owner will be okay with that.

what's going on with your right legs? fix the uneven jump, focus on spreading them evenly when you recieve the bar, better fix it now when you're still new rather than have a chronic injury due to it later

i dont really see any glaring issues on the lift except maybe you're drifting forward when you recover the jerk, might be just because it's a pr

do this instead, follow torokhtiy on instagram he's posting the rest of his training

you get variations that you need to learn the lifts, you can still do tm style progression on your squat mwf

https://www.instagram.com/yashakahn/

watch every video especially the older ones on that account and read his blog you can see it on his profile, it will teach you how to properly do the variations, also watch torokhtiy yt he breaks down how he wants you to do the lifts on his yt

Thanks for the link. I have no doubt that this is a better Oly program, but the transition program leaves room for the other big lifts and some accessory work.

The program in the spreadsheet looks good for someone totally committed to Oly, but doesn't seem to leave space for other big compounds, and maybe some space for accesory work.

This was the attitude I expected to have and the one I anticipate in myself.

here's the thing. every rep you do incorrectly (which is every single rep you do currently) is one more rep under a proficient that has to be unlearned

it is SO much easier to teach a complete beginner because they don't have all these fucked up motor patterns, shitty habits etc

you are doing more harm than good by practicing by yourself. just be a powerlifter till you find a coach. you can't do it alone

Its definitely getting better man, the pull from the floor has a good path, much better than before. I'm sure you know, but try and be more explosive in the second pull now. You're strong as shit and you can upright row a lot more than this, but eventually that obviously won't work.

I would suggest trying to slide your feet out when you go under the bar. I can't really tell from this angle but it looks like your feet don't move at all. Some people get away with this, but it might help you feel the transition under the bar better and get the idea of going under quickly.

If you could get videos from like a 45 degree angle to the front and side it might be a bit easier to see everything. The directly side on view ain't perfect :-)

Biggest issue I see is that you're bringing your hips into the bar rather than extending them upwards, which is why youre banging the bar outwards.

I can't lie, I have trouble describing it without showing people. But ideally, the hips should extend upwards rather than forwards as much as possible.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um4VxiI2Ng0

This video shows a decent example - see how Ilya's hips move forwards only minimally, and the bar is driven up by a concerted effort of leg and hip extension combined with an aggressive "shrug" to get under.

thanks man.

so i was advised earlier to NOT do this?

should i try it again soon?

>>35736386
When learning the pull from the floor, being super explosive can lead a beginner to essentially pull themselves out of position, or try and use the arms to "help out". But the "second pull", basically above the knees, should be as fast as you can stay in position with.

Stop adding weight to the bar and missing over and over

You're flicking your hips and jumping

Set back, arms relaxed, push with legs, let the bar come into the hip, don't worry about getting hio to bar let it come to you

Stop whipping your head back

You should read training progressions from a few coaches, so that you can see the common goal between them.

When you're doing drills with light weight and you don't know exactly what you're supposed to do, it can be misleading because you can get away with less-than-optimal form with light weight just fine.

The picture here is the core motion in the clean (and just about the same for the snatch). Your back is very nearly vertical, there's only a few inches of bend in your knees, and very importantly, your weight is back near your heels, NOT on your toes. Then you extend, straighten out very fast. Be careful using 'jumping' or 'stamping' as a cue though, because that could encourage you to shift your weight forward when you extend.

90% of the time when you miss an attempt, it's because you've started the 'pop' too early, when your back has too much of an angle to it, or you kept your weight forward on your toes too much.

Most of the rest of the movements are peripheral and come naturally enough and even if they don't it's no biggie, but most beginners don't get that fundamental movement down.

You have to wait, wait, wait, wait until your back is almost vertical and you have only a few inches of bend in your knees and you have your weight back on your heels. At lightweight, this won't really feel powerful, but at heavyweight, it will feel very satisfying and powerful.

>>35735461
those are slightly better than last time but keep doing what you did when you feel the autism

do several pulls then the clean like 3 high pulls + clean it looks better because you can feel the proper way to do it instead of just thinking about it doing singles, feeling the movement is better than just thinking about it

everytime something doesnt click stop thinking about the movement and just do it and feel the correct movement instead
>>
>>35737246
>I REALLY need to learn how to get under it

you won't drop under it completely in a few days, this would take months look at some of the twinks posting here who's been doing it longer than you have, they still dont completely bottom out on their max lifts

be patient, you're doing fine, just keep catching it where you pull it to like you're doing now but don't stop there, drop down into a full squat like you've been doing
>>
>>35735461
do cleans and snatch from hang or from blocks

then watch the pendlay videos on how to move from the hang to the starting position
