I had the problem with power cleans for the longest time as well. Only in the last few months have things really "clicked." Things I personally toyed with was the start position and where my feet/shins were relative to the bar. I also really tried to slow down my first pull, which was screwing up everything else because I was trying to rush it.

Do you struggle with cleans as well? I'm remembering you don't, but I could be wrong. A good progression for power cleans I think would be halting deadlifts(clean positioning), clean pulls then power cleans.
