This workout I repeatedly racked the bar right on my clavicle during cleans. Its probably lucky I wasnt using that much weight. What causes this problem, and what are the fixes?

Get the elbows up more so the deltoids are higher. Bar sits on the delts & upper chest muscles -- not your clavicles.

Musta left a mark there...

yeah fast elbows or big bruise. Also my right clavicle has a nice bump on it from doing it that way for so long.

it's less about elbow position than shoulder position - push them forward and up.
