Learning the powerclean
An attempt at powerclean, any comments?
The weight is 115lb, fairly easy, but I wanted to solicit feedback on form before I proceed.
Ideally, we'd like to see more than one rep, to see patterns.
I probably should have realized this.
For next workout I'll line up my cam operator to capture more reps.
Got a few more reps on vid this time. 115 felt feather light so I ventured to increase, first to 125 and then 135. Comments?
192lbm @ 5'11"
You're slowing down in the middle of the thigh, and your eyes are hanging position at the end of the pull. Among other things, I'm sure.
Your jump is a little strange, and I have a guess why.
I think when you initiate your jump, you're popping the bar out forward and away from your body with your thighs.
Then you're jumping forward to get your body back under the bar.
More plates might fix this for you.
Yup, I see the slow down now that you pointed it out and lack of thoracic extension(?) during the jump.
I know what to work on, thanks!
