    these are fine.
    maybe the weight is a little light to detect problems/"weaknesses".

    I saw your other post in Programming about transitioning to Olympic Weightlifting.
    I would find a coach asap and go ahead with that now.
    You seem to have a high aptitude for the classic lifts based on this.

    You're dropping your hips as you get you "snap" your back into extension. Set up like you would for the deadlift, with a wider clean grip, and then squeeze the back up without letting the hips drop.
    Get your eyes locked on the ground about 12 feet out and slow down your initial pull off the ground.
    Start there and see how that goes.
    You can also check out the video posted to the Starting Strength YouTube channel yesterday to see the whole progression.
