Hi people, would you critique my rack jerk? Have been working on it and it seems it has improved quite a bit. Need critique on the dip too. Am I dipping too fast?

That is a VERY good jerk from what I can tell. Very, very strong and vertical drive on most of those lifts. Personally, I think you are dipping about 1/2" too much, which on the lighter lifts caused your torso to travel a wee bit forward. I have found emphasizing pushing the knees out helps to prevent the shins from sliding forward too much. It also creates a really nice stretch reflex because of the adductors.

Definitely sliding forward a bit on the dip, although you counter it very well with the drive and the speed of your feet. Really sit back into it as far as you can.
