    Default Power Clean - Form Check

    Im 17 years old, 510, 190 lbs. I am currently on the 2nd phase of novice progression and have begun incorporating power cleans into my workouts. I started light with 95 lbs to make sure my technique is good before adding weight to the bar. Can someone give me a critique? Thanks!

    Hey Brody
    Have you read the updated sticky at the top?

    You can't set up correctly with plates that are smaller than the standard 450mm diameter. If the gym has bumper plates lighter than 45lbs, use those to start.
    You're pulling it off the ground too fast and the bar is losing contact with your legs.
    If you're intent on adding power cleans to your program regularly, you'll need to get plates that allow you start at the correct height.

    Coach Pete,
    Isn't that also an arm pull coming from the jump point ?
    or am I seeing that wrong ?

    Yeah. I wasn't going to critique the whole thing because the start position is off to begin with.
