Clean critique
Hi, I've been following starting strength for a couple of months and switched power cleans for cleans a couple of weeks ago (planning to start the beginner program from Greg's book next week). I would really appreciate any comments you have on the following videos.

some cleans from last week

I noticed I was possibly starting with the bar too far back and maybe scooping a bit early so I focused on starting with the bar more over the toes and trying to sweep it back.

A light clean and jerk from today

It looks like you're doing a lot of stuff right. As the weight got heavier, it looks like your hips are rising too fast relative to your shoulder. Focus on keeping your back angle the same as the bar gets to the knees.

On pretty much all your lifts, you are jumping pretty far backwards. Focus on keeping your feet about where they started, other than just a quick transition from your pulling position to your catch position.

Keep it up!!!
