Does anyone have any insight into when Dmitry Lapikov will return??? His ban is over I think but he's 33 years old.... 217 snatch though. He's done 215 no straps pretty easily..... I want to see this guy compete..!!
I've developed an interest in weightlifting and plan to join my university's weightlifting club when I go there in September.
Until then, I am squatting 3x a week (b:f, 2:1) and following 531 for the press, deadlift and bench to get some size and strength on me. I have a separate 4th day where I'm kinda playing around with weightlifting.
I don't have access to a coach so I've been trying to teach myself the basics of the power clean, but keeping it at that. My question is, how would you program that separate day for someone who's new to weightlifting? My thoughts have been to use 5x3 linear progression on the power clean once I'm comfortable with the movement, followed by some light overhead squats, and then heavy isometric overhead holds which is currently a huge weak point.
pic related: where my mobility is currently at.
use 5x3 for for most oly lifts, and for snatch training you can use 6x2. Doing these sort of movements for 5 reps a set just doesn't really work as you get too tired mid set to keep your form tight. For heavy overhead holds look into snatch balance or drop jerks etc. so many variations you can do depending on your mobility issue and stability. I'd also snatch and clean before other lifts every session if they are your goal to improve as one day of oly usually isn't enough technique work for a whole week.
What would I know though, I'm just some dude on the internet. A weightlifting club will do a better job of programming for you than I could so maybe just ask them before you go if you can.
I'm gonna be going to uni in Scotland in september. Currently i'm living in the netherlands where weightlifting isn't big, so there's not a single gym in my city that trains for it. Of course there are crossfit gyms but the cost to get personal training for the oly lifts is ridiculous.
Thanks for some of that info.
But what's the general consensus on people attempting to snatch and clean without a coach. I don't want to develop wrong movement patterns, which is why I thought i'd mainly focus on strengthening individual components of the lifts so I'd have a good base for when I'd be taught the lifts.
I do both without a coach at the moment, I used to have a coach but I moved to a shit city with no weightlifting at all. Regional australia is fucking worse for it than the Nederlands I bet. You really can teach yourself fairly well by posting form checks here and checking youtube videos, don't get your weight higher without being sure though. Also learn how to ditch out of a snatch and c+j, its the first thing you need to know to not die and its pretty straight forward. Including push press is more useful than OHP I think, do both.
It's been done, you just have to not push yourself into doing it wrong with high weights but eventually you will need a coach anyway.
whats probably going to happen if you teach yourself, is you'll do it for 6 months, get to the new gym and you'll spend another 6 months re learning it because you'll probably teach yourself incorrectly and there's nothing fun about that
can it be done? yes
how often do the people who do it succeed? not often
one other thing you might want to add in is what one of the guys at my club calls a "chinese press"
its basically a power jerk but your feet don't move
where in aus are you? i'm semi-regional qld and the club im at is great
I wouldn't recommend to try to learn the power clean for now. You probably develope some bad technique habits, that are hard to get rid of later. Its also harder to learn to pull yourself under the bar and do a squat clean, when you have performed power cleans thousand times, thinking of pulling the bar up, instead of pulling yourself down.
Once you develope a bad habit, it can be veeery hard to get rid of it.
I don't think that its going to be fun.. It'll take long to get decent if you coach yourself. And the times when you don't notice those little things that your coach would, you end up stalling.. And stalling, and probably get a minor / big injury.
You might not notice mobility issues, or technichal issues which cost you lots of power, speed and joint health.
If you're not serious about it, just learn the power clean for power..
Or just ignore me and do it
I'm in Coffs Harbour nsw, gonna have to get a home gym in the next month as I'm not going to cross fit gyms for $40 a week just for oly. Where in qld are you? Xxxx is shit brah soz.
I used to live in Armidale and the pcyc there was all about olympic lifts it was awesome.
Beginner oly lifter here
This is actually a scary scenario, hadn't really thought about it. How possible it is to fail this bad, if you have properly learned the exercise and been wise with progression?
How about clean? What happens when you fail a clean.. Does the bar come crashing to your knees?
practice bailing the bar behind you a few times if you want to get comfortable.
the worst you can fail a clean is not receiving it and it lands on your knees. really rare and probably wont ever happen once youve been doing it long enough that you can clean a considerable weight. sometimes youll fall backwards with it in which case just let it land, it wont crush you. dont try to press it off or youll fuck your wrists
if you see it coming, just move out from under the bar, either backwards or forwards
Thanks, that actually helped. I think that if you're afraid of these things, you haven't done enough quality reps with less weight. Once you start to hit the big weights, your body knows what to do, right?
pretty much. with snatch youre gonna miss a lot whenever youre pushing weight regardless of how comfortable you are, but its also easier to bail.
im an intermediate lifter and i occasionally fall back on cleans. first few times it happened i jammed my wrist trying to keep it off me but fortunately lightweight so no big. now i either see its coming and push the weight forward and jump back, or i let it happen
>tfw cant get to gym cause too much snow
i love canada
>that judge on the right
tfw you only barely out-snatch olyboi and you weigh 15kg more
form check me
and my incredibly shit jerk at 105
you grip and rip it looks like, notice how you arent smooth off the floor, theres that small jolt near the start
also not finishing the pull which causes you too have to jump forwards
Looks pretty good. I can only pull 225 on a good day. Most days I start breaking down around 215.....
One day I'll dial in my form
I can't find the original =(
you start to pull under the bar once it passes your kneez, you SHOULD start pulling under when the bar is around belly button height/the highest point of your pull
fully extend legs and pull elbows up towards the cieling ala scarcrow
I hurt my wrist a little bit again this morning because of these damn straps. The bar was cold so i decided to use straps. Everything felt shitty. Maybe it's because i have shitty mdusa wraps.
Look how slow my pull is yo. I did that on purpose. Just testing some stuff out.
Straps feel super uncomfortable for me
In competition you have to grip the bar six times. So if grip is limiting what you can do in training you are cheating yourself.
Did you know that knsu almost always use belt and straps?
Only manlets have problem with grip when hook tho
Look rostami was even using straps to warm up at worlds lol
Ur not really cheating yourself more like saving your thumbs if you don't have grip problems and comp is still far away I always strap
>Ur not really cheating yourself more like saving your thumbs if you don't have grip problems and comp is still far away I always strap
I meant that you're most likely cheating yourself if you're not using wraps
Ye i'm going to use heater for PM training
Dude, if you're just going to do squats, presses, deadlifts, and power cleans, just do SS.
>My thoughts have been to use 5x3 linear progression on the power clean once I'm comfortable with the movement, followed by some light overhead squats, and then heavy isometric overhead holds which is currently a huge weak point.
1.) Maybe after you get the hang of power cleans, you start learning snatches and alternate power snatches with the power cleans.
2.) You're new. The best thing for YOU to do to help overhead strength and stability is to just get your standing press as strong as you can. Once you've exhausted simple LP gains, you can start to benefit more from specific "problem solving" lifts.
not true at all. But it's important to do your OHP like you'd jerk - upright with no lean, and following all the upper body jerk cues like tight back and head through. Don't bother using it as anything except a strength and hypertrophy assistance, done whenever you feel you need more shoulder mass
Hanging leg raises are the classic choice for strengthening.
Decline weighted crunches are also useful.
Dragonflags are great, if you can actually manage to do them.
Planks are great for training the endurance (which is often a limiting factor on front squat sets).
And believe it or not, vacuums help a bunch too. Strong transverse abdominis allow you to generate and hold higher intraabdominal pressure during the movements.
Coming back from a long break (~7 months), How would I program to get back to my previous levels of strength and mobility?
I could go in and start snatching and cleaning, but my technique will suffer due to shoulder mobility issues, and my squat form was always kinda shitty (dive bomb, round hips) because I focused on weight too much.
I can't just... not lift until I regain mobility.
yeah I don't even know anymore m8. Whenever I start to try to get my squat up, my knee explodes or my autoimmune condition flares up. I've been trying to get stronger through pulls almost exclusively, squatting only once a week, because they don't hurt
trappy chan pls help me
I'll be totally honest with you, I do only dragon flags for abs BUT i want to use the hang leg raises...
problem here is everytime I do them I have an orgasm (yes femanon here) and is kinda hard to concentrate to get a second sets
Don't pull your elbows up to the ceiling before you extend.
Then pull your elbows up to the ceiling
What is problem? You couldn't honestly think he meant to pull elbows up to ceiling from the starting position on the floor, surely.
Elbows high is a good cue to help keep bar close not loop
When you think "pull elbows up" premature armbend isnt really a problem
sometimes there's a pull to neck(chinese) vs elbows up(russian) arguement tho. i've heard people say that pull to neck makes people prematurely bend arms but that guy just doesnt know what he's talking about
/owg/, if you wanted to reincorporate the The Press back into the Olympics, what criteria in judging would you place in order to make it impossible for competitors to make it "Standing Benchpress 2:Electric Boogaloo"?
Here's a nice article about it.
guys i was almost dies
I did 145x3 pause squat and then tried a double at 150 for one(remember that i'm working on my squat tek) and missed rep 2
then i had to go shit because i had the runs
then i came back and decided to warm back up from 135 and intended to go to 160
but when i reracked it i missed on the right side
got it on video too
i'm gonna go snatch now and then maybe squat again
kinda shitty workout today fampai
I was meant to do 5x3 hang snatch at 80%, which was pretty hard. First two sets were OK, but I was rushing it and bar was looping a little more than I'd like. Second two sets I ended up powering everything, and on the last set I just failed 3 reps in a row. I think I tried to go for too high an intensity
then I made a 90% power snatch incredibly easily kek
how was your workout /owg/
hard as shit at the moment, there were 6 work sets. It was meant to be 75% today but I was chatting to a friend who weightlifts and said that Greg suggested 80% if you didn't max out on the last cycle (which I didn't)
enjoying the snatch liftoffs though, never used to do those
at what point can you tell your hip mobility is good?
>tfw always make dumbass faces when squatting
idk if it's even possible
what kind of stands are those?
since i started lifting in stands i always walk through it till its tipped to make sure it's racked
the only time a barbell fell off the stands was when i absentmindedly started taking off all plates on one side then the other crashed so now i just dump the bar to the ground if it's my last set

How much do i goodmorning this
I know he didn't MEAN that, but you tell someone to pull their elbows and, surprisingly, they're liable to pull with their elbows.
The elbow remains straight until the jump is completed, at that point, the job of pulling the weight is done, and people will instinctively flip their elbows under the bar and wind up in the rack position. Tell someone to do anything but keep their elbows straight through the pull is only going to ruin things
Do it out of a rack because any weight someone can press is going to be trivial to clean, and cleaning it in the first place guarantees bad pressing mechanics in the form of a suboptimal grip.
Otherwise, I'd hardly care about layback. Just being strict on no knee bend ought to keep it from getting too crazy.
>The elbow remains straight until the jump is completed, at that point, the job of pulling the weight is done, and people will instinctively flip their elbows under the bar and wind up in the rack position.

NO NO NO
shit. jon north tier technique.
You do pull with your elbows you mongoloid
after extension you continue to pull with your upper body
also i did this squat today too but i really shouldnt count it. The whole point of this exercise for me is to not bounce in the hole. My 155 from Thursday looked much better
>and people will instinctively flip their elbows under the bar
says the guy who doesnt lift
>how do you snatch
you lift the barbell overhead dumbass you nisitvcly do it if you just lift, dont tell people how to lift you can think it and will be
>dont tell people how to lift you can think it and will be
I'm from Dubbo, we're basically by neighbours Australian standards.
Have the same problem you do and love the home gym. There's one gym here with platforms and bumpers, and it's opening hours blow.
For coaching I just get by with the occasional coaching session with one of the Xfit coaches in town, he knows enough to provide decent feedback.
You should see if one of the gyms down there offer those casual coaching sessions.
>jon north tier technique.
jon north has good clean and snatch he has shit jerks but he still lifts better than your bitch ass?
achude nayshun salute
im serious though jon north has the best technique in cal strength
my squats looks very similar but my hips are very tight. squat bottom position isn't a really good indicator of your hip mobility imo cause you can cheat with lots of ankle dorsiflexion
no one at cal strength has good tech and john north has some of the worst
I think jun nurt has an elbow deformity that makes all of his jerks illegal btw
no. in everetts book they talk about this.
One of the cues they use to teach people is to jump first, but then you have to learn to jump, but instead of using the energy to move yourself up, you transfer it to the bar. Its the same concept, but YOU do not jump - the energy that would have gone into you going up goes into the barbell instead.
Hey friends. I'm a general strength guy who's thinking about adding olympic lifts into my 5/3/1. I found this plan on another forum and would like to hear your take on it:
(lifting twice a week)
Power snatch 6x2/6x2/3x2, 5x1 (ramping up)
Power clean 10x1 with 60s/75s/90s rest between (sets across)
Front squat 5x3/7x2/10x1
Obv I would get the movements down before trying to push the weights.
Yeah na elbows up is a cue for the snatch really, not the clean, if you can't tell then it's pretty clear you don't even lift.
But wait, then you say dumb shit like
>...until the jump is competed, at that point the job of pulling the weight is completed...
And can't you see that elbows up is only for once you have extended, not from the floor? Seriously?
What the fuck man if you don't even lift then don't post ffs
do it as much as possible don't even bother with sets and reps just try to do a bunch of triples and practice technique, you won't be doing any weight with it if you want to learn how to properly do it first, it won't affect your routine as long as you're just practicing the movement for not too long before you start the squats and other shit
and actually learn how to snatch and clean powers are not and should not be easier to learn than the full lifts because it's basically the same exact thing with different height where you stop the bar. the reason why most program do power shit is due to mobility defiency. dumbfucks on the internet just misunderstood that
you'd thank yourself later if you learned or at least tried to learn properly if you ever want to compete in wl full time
Just training twice a week. I already do this for the slow lifts so I was just curious about whether I could add in the olympic lifts without having to go to the gym more often than I would like.
Yeah, the sets and reps were meant for after I get technique down. I'm probably just going to spend the first little while with the bar or at most like 40kg.
As far as doing the full lifts, I actually have thought about it (even though I don't plan to compete). I still might, but I'm pretty lazy when it comes to improving mobility.
try this right now, stand up on your tippy toes hip width as high as you can then move your feet out wider and land on your heels as you do. this shit would hurt barefoot if you weigh 100kg or more, but that's where the sounds come from, especially with wooden heeled shoes
the feet may separate from the ground for a moment but you don't try to lift yourself up like you would in a jump like others have said, you only pick your feet up to reposition them
blagh i really really really need to do some of these.
even when I'm "focusing" onpulling through with my arms it doesn' happen....
yeah. its really fucking annoying being this immobile and unskilled (personally)
it takes me literally about 30 - 45 minutes just to put 10 lbs on the bar and start doing shit. and then probably another 20-30 minutes until i get to any "real" weight (115-135 lbs kek)
such is life though
the amount of work one needs to put in to get to "ok" tier is really daunting.
I have no idea. I'm pulling archaic images out of a random folder i had tucked away in my /fit/ folder tonight.
when you first started using hookgrip, did your fingers / thumbs / hands ever go randomly numb?
it mostly happens to me at night, but i can happen if i sit at the keyboard too long in the wrong position, or do some small motion repetetively.... its really annoying.
in this video, he cought it where he wanted it, but then the weight wanted to continue backwards and he had to fight it in a shitty position.
was this because he did the "frankenstein" instead of "marionette" ? (elbows up)
was it because of his second pull? was it because both? were there any other things that could have caused it?
I don't find it very easy to diagnose max effort lifts, but it looks like the main thing that happened was that he wasn't keeping it tight when he received the bar
looks maybe like he didn't keep it close but hard to tell from this angle
I wouldn't use other lifters as a basis for your own form problems though
No it's because he's got wobbly ass shoulders lol. He should've dumped that shit rather than get injured for literally nothing if it was some important meet sure but he didn't die still stupid
You won't see the elbows come completely up like in the drills watch elite lifters, it's a cue like most cues in wl when you lift you won't necessarily see it happen but it's the intention of doing it is what matters
>I wouldn't use other lifters as a basis for your own form problems though
fair enough. i was thinking trying to pick things apart would be good but i think youre right and just shutting up and doing things and not thinking is probably best for me.
Even the work to get past absolute shit tier is respectable
I feel like I've seen this before, how long since we've had one of those threads?
No, only hand numbness I've ever experienced is due to being whacked on the hand. If it's anything other than the tip of your thumb then it's probably not caused by hooking.
Here's klokov talking about it:
About the jumping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts5essXg1Bc
About the shrugging (around 2:30): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGj5mXCpy6w
He's showing the snatch, but it's the same principle for the clean and the jerk.
He does call it "jumping position", just like pretty much everyone else, but it's not actually a jump.
>tfw scott is literally gonna literally kill max aita
say im going to get coaching within a month. should i just call quits on sheiko now, drop all benching and focus on getting mobile with overhead squats and such? currently lifting 170/140/220 so i should probably keep working on my squat too?
From what I'm hearing yup. Max's the one claiming she got it from scott's seaman which is ridiculous.
so much gossip about this fuck. http://wlforums.com/forums/showthread.php?1070-2015-ao&p=35645&viewfull=1#post35645
>max filed a goddamn restraining order against scott because he texted him and was like "if whatever drugs you gave her hurt her, I'm fucking coming for you" so coach's logical response was to call Oakland PD, tell them a "known drug user" was threatening his life
at 6:00 you can see lu and tian doing this exercise: http://www.allthingsgym.com/lu-xiaojun-back-exercise-lu-rows/
is it a legit way to get back hyperthropy or are they trolling us into snapping our back
I fucking love HG. shame they won't get credentials for Rio.
doubt it's bad, if so they wouldn't have two of their top 3 lifters doing them. also it's upper back mostly so less of a chance to fuck your shit up.
Go lower and don't hold the bar with your neck :p
Pointing your toes out a bit and opening your knees when going down can help a bunch.
Work on your ankle dorsiflexion mobility, it's pretty important to achieve depth and keep you from "falling forwards" when going up.
I guess you could go a little lower? seems like you recently unlocked 140kg squats.
Look at your feet though, a bit of forward lean, you can see your heel raise just a tad.
I have the same exact problem/same exact shoe/ height/ and squat right now. I am doing the same thing, be careful I fucked up my foot tendons doing too much forward lean.
If you're talking about Edinburgh University you're in for a treat with the uni's gym, it's absoloutely phenomenal. There's so much provision for weightlifting and strength training in general. Jealous, I'd love to go back and study there again, intstead I'm stuck with my shitty commercial gym.
you can tell by widening your stance
in that pic is pretty obvious you aren't using any hip abductor mobility - you're sitting behind your hips not between them. good news is, your back is good while doing so, meaning you have good hip flexor mobility
when i first started oly (i also started with hg straight away for everything) i think my thumbs were numb for a few weeks (not no feelings numb but pretty annoying) it went away eventually tho
I'm selling a pair of 2008 Adidas Ironwork 3 weightlifting shoes on Ebay.
They are in incredible condition and are still glowing white with all parts intact.
There are very few in circulation as the line was discontinued which makes them very valuable shoes.
If you might be interested, give me a message, it'd be my pleasure to talk with you.
Enjoy your Sundays!
I don't like how trip here. You being a trap has fuck all to do with this thread and you're not particularly knowledgeable or good. You just spout shit you've read elsewhere and I think you don't need to attentionwhore to do that.
I completely self-taught myself. Began with a 50kg snatch, now at a 105kg snatch and 130kg clean and jerk.
I've competed without a coach and performed great.
To build technique: Film yourself lifting constantly and study professional technique by watching them and reading up on their methods.
For making strength gains - Look up programs from verified coaches and look at other peopke results on them - I just did catalyst athletics "karas nine weeks" and put 10kg on my snatch and 15 on clean.
For competing - research how intermediates or whatever level you are should prepare.
now that you mention it, i think thats a strength issue of mine more than mobility.
i used to be really wobbly when pause squatting. ive fixed it now, but what you described could be a symptom of hip abductor weakness
dont listen to them commie youre my hero
god damnit i seriously fucking hate stretching so fucking much
no, that literally makes me feel worse lol. I prefer to have alight at the end of the tunnel
thats what I'm working on. its tought when you're as tight as me though. hips and groin are just fucking brutal no matter what.
It IS coming along, but its just sooooo slow
also if you really wanna hate yourself and get mobility fast i would recommend this shit http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96381 it is pretty fucking taxing tho and will make you a living leg day meme (you can probably use it for other stretches too as he says) but itll improve mobility a lot
What shoes do you wear? I switched to Romaleos after pp2s and the difference is huge don't have mobility issues but after I switched I can press from the bottom of a squat with clean grip easily when I had pp2s I'd always fall on my ass when I tried pressing from there
I'm in adipowers right now. They're holding up pretty well, so I have no desire to switch. When I eventually do, I'll probably get romaleos (although adipowers look like they're good for another 3-5 years)
first, holy christ that sounds miserable to the point that I don't know if I could do it.
>Wondering why you even need to go any further at all? Good question. You might be able to do full splits by level 18, but you won't be able to do them "cold" (i.e. without a warm up). And that is what you want. So by going a little further up the scale, in this case to level 19 or 20, you'll develop enough strength that your body will feel safe enough to let you drop to the floor like a pancake in an instant. At any time of day (or night). Instantly. (Did I say you would do it instantly?)
this sounds exactly like my deal.. i've been watching alot of my dumps on cleans and my snatches, and it really just looks like its because my damn hips are so tight that I can't just "drop into" that position - my hips try to fight me and push my torso around in stupid ways. this manifests itsself as a dump in the clean I think (webm)
I've been thinking tomyself alot lately "It takes me fucking ages to get warmed up enough to get even clsoe to these positions... I need to be more mobile than these positions so that I don't have to get warmed up / stretch out as long, and if i get cold between sets it doesn't come back to inhibit me"
this guys is basically saying the same thing, no?
I'm really interested to give romaleos a try.
you know what the problem is? It's on your squats too. You squat everything low bar. I think it's as much a tech problem as it is a mobility problem. You kick your hips back to initiate when really you need to think about dropping your hip girdle between your legs.
>i started doing this in the past only to have countless people tell me I was retarded and to stop doing it
It makes sense... but how the fuck do you undo that.... how in the literal fuck can you squat any other way?
the only way I know to put any power into it is like this... if i try to go straight up.... well, nothing happens lol
I got mine on sale from eastbay.com for half price, they should go on sale again since they should be coming with the new version for this years olympics. Watch any online store that sells them
>strict press 162kg
>that's something I squat 1RM
>Also your hip flexors look tight still
dude, they're going to be tight for a long, long LONG time. there's no way around it lol.
I'll go back to trying to squat completely vertical. we'll see what happens. I'm anticipating >garbage but we'll see.
Is there any way I can keep my hip shift back for PL too? I feel like these styles might interfere with eachother
you have the build to pull a Christensen squat out of the back. Williams too, kind of. The main difference being that those two seem to sit on the femurs, whereas a weightlifter will sit between them.
I wouldn't feel too bad. Klokov can snatch my 5RM diddylift
yeah I have, but I assume norsefat has too and his problem is that he sits back. I think the problem is far more than mobility, and he says he's tried everything so it could be that different cues will help.
I used to (and maybe still do a little) have the same problem, and cuing knees forward helped me realize that you can't just shift all the stress onto the hips when you descend. You have to actively keep the quads engaged or you end up with noodly wobbles on the ascent
again I'm not recommending general form cues, only some ideas that could help a very specific problem. Presumably the two soviets teach the back squat as a general principle, rather than the olympic squat relative to the powerlifting squat
yeah, this is the feeling I get from ever one too :(
I don't know though.
blech who knows
>You have to actively keep the quads engaged or you end up with noodly wobbles on the ascent
oh oh oh
this makes everything make so much more sense....
this might be worth giving a try.
memer plaese go
How would you guys incorporate interval training (sprinting set distances for a competitive time) into your training routine?
Do it right after lifting? Right before? Hours later, like lift in the AM and sprint in the evening, or vice versa?
Thanks in advance, will monitor.
For what it's worth, splitting my training session into two separate ones (AM/PM), would make my life hell.
I go to a 24/7 gym, with a 24/7 track also available. Probably going to do something like lift first on mon-wed-fri, sprint first on tues-thurs
The sprinting would be very taxing.. Not exactly a "warm up", but I see what you're saying. The sprint sessions are usually an hour or so long, most of that time spent resting, though.
What would my best plan be if I said lifting in the evening is not possible? It would just be such a stretch on my schedule
He's not a bodybuild idiot
You can do that shit if you just want to lose some weight after pumping your dick but it won't work if you've been snatching and jerking off then sprint afterword
Not exactly plyo, but similar in regards to being a 100% speed thing, similar taxation on the CNS so thanks!
To each his own, cupcake
I'm thinking about only doing on easier days
It ain't just tight hips making you miss that, there's a fair bit wrong technically.
Stop trying to PR. I know you're strong but doing 120kg like that is dumb, you need to work on cleaning properly. Stick with around 80/90/100 that's probably about right for you to ingrain some movement.
Your hang looked better. See how you're pulling and receiving without moving feet? That looks awkward. Don't sit down in the start like that either. I know cool dudes like klokov do but you don't need to. Pay more attention of where you are in relation to the bar and really setup properly.
You've deffo improved but personally I think you're not ready to be taking big jumps and doing maxes
