    It depends on the rep in question, not always, but sometimes. So, definitely it has improved. I would take a slightly wider grip; you are a bit scrunched for a clean. Also, you tend to reverse curl the bar to your shoulders. You need to move your arms around the bar and punch your elbows under and up. Look at what your arms do when you unrack the bar back down to prepare for the next rep; that is what the actual racking should look like when you catch on the way up.
