    Set-up: Raise your hips until you can extend your back. It should be at least flat. Practice per SSBT p37-38 until you feel it.

    Don't roll the bar back to you. place the bar mid-foot, then bring your shins to the bar. Chest up might help some here.

    On the negative, look at the bar path. You are breaking at the knee before the hips. Bar path should be straight in both directions.

    That's the point - you don't move the bar. Have you read the book? It's kind of an entry point for this stuff.

    Hey sorry for misunderstanding.

    Yes I have read the book :-)

    Between reps you mean getting in the position 1.51(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Syt7A23YnpA)
    And then take little steps to get it exactly over the middle of the foot.


    Sorry for being so vague

    Your help is appreciated

    No. Each rep should begin and end in the position at 2:01. (although IMO, a slightly more extended back would be preferred). Like here (I like his position & back angle, not necessarily the explosive way he lifts):

    Alright so you're saying that the starting position at the beginning wasn't good?
    And if I fix that I wont need to fix it in the middle.

    Sorry for failing to fully comprehend you.

    Not native speaker :-) (poor excuse)

    First, I feel sorry for you if that is the best lifting platform you have. Please tell me that's at least a rubberized floor, not carpet. Second, stop looking the fucking mirror. Stop it. Now. Learn to feel your position. Proprioception and all that. Third, are those regular diameter plates? They look small. Having smaller diameter plates may contribute to your problems getting set into a good stance, because you're pulling from a lower position. Otherwise, what Greg said.

    They probably look small since I am almost 2m.

    It's carpet but it's not squishy, really thin layerd I guess.

    The other gym in town was not letting me use chalk and I could not military press since I would have hit the cealing.
    Its a commercial gym no doubt, but they have free barbells a squat rack and they allow me to use chalk I guess thats enough for me to progress on.

    I will stop looking in the mirror immediatly .

    chin up, chest up, hips up from starting position.

    You'll fuck up your back if you lift like that with a decent amount of weight.

    your face should be more vertical.. rather than horizontal, and holding your head in that posisition seems to do something magical that allows you to lift better.

    Chest up is important as it keeps your back straight... atm you chest is neutral position, which is making you lower back arch a little.

    Hips need to be higher, it will push your knees back a little, and allow you to clear the bar better.

    Read the book
