    Yes, elbows should be faster, the triple extensions could be angrier but, overall, a clear improvement.
    Keep at it.

    I feel like today at 77.5 kg these started to click. Still need work but I think I see what I need to work on now.

    Hello,

    let me take the dangerous course of action of (partially) disagreeing with the great man himself.

    Besides being on of the best exercises for the coordination of the full extension of the posterior chain, one of the ways the Power Clean is sometimes used is as a stepping stone towards learning the Clean. I know, we are not doing this here, but hear me out for a minute.
    In the Clean learning process, once you have learned to Power Clean, your next step is to Power Clean + squat down and back up. The point here is that after the PC, your feet should be in a position that allows you (should you want) to just squat down, and back up, without any further adjustments.

    It looks as if you would not be able to do that; you land your PC with very wide feet and in position that does not seem that stable; indeed, you have to quickly recover a narrow stance and stand up.

    The bottom line is that I think you should try to complete you PC with a narrower, more stable position. Because the point of the PC is not (or should not , imho) to just rack the bar anyhow.

    IPB is right. The stance you return to after the rack should be the stance you hit after the jump.

    Totally, I see that now and Iím not sure why Iím doing it. Iíll see what I can do to fix it. Probably will need to reset the weight a bit. Thanks!
