Re: Bar crashing, catching it too low?
The bounce all depends upon the weight and not all of them make it up or under the bar when it gets heavy.
For example i front squat 125kgs at the moment and i am 47yrs old but my squat clean is 106kgs. Even though i squat more it does not mean my clean will be the same due to the set up and the lifts being different.
There is so much difference between starting in a standing rack position and starting from the floor.
Increase your front squat and your squat clean will also improve.
