Are there any drills that help re-teach myself to not thrust my hips into the bar?
I'm new to these movements, so bear with me.

My thought is to do Tall Varietys of the snatch and clean. Or high block reps concentrating on the 2nd and 3rd pulls. Primarily the second pull.

I'm in a similar situation in that I'm finally getting my hips to the bar, but when I'm over agressive with my hips, I knock the bar out a bit and make it hard to catch. My gut is telling me the Tall version, hang version, and high block (above the knee) version would help me with this issue.

All the best,
