Shoulders over the bar when you start the pull

Re: Power Clean 1RM

Drop your hips a little and look forward, not down. Notice on the 185 that your head down pulls your forward as you come off the floor. Also, as the other guy said, get your arms more vertical.

Re: Power Clean 1RM

Yeah, you're setting up too much like a deadlift, and it's keeping the bar out in front of you as well as pulling your weight forward right from the ground.

As Keith said, get your hips down on the start. Don't let them shoot up and end up in the same position either.
