Do you have video access? Posting a vid for the likes of Greg and Aimee to see would probably give you the most bang for the $$.

I had a confusing start to figuring out my different starting positions for the different lift.

My original DL start was very much a clean start (low hips, more like a squat). At my Level I CF cert, Rip used me as an example and raised my hips up for the DL start.

So I start working with that position. Then I go to the PMenu OL cert and Greg moves my hips back down for the clean start position.

Now I know the difference very well due to my personal experience. I do know that if I started an OL with high hips there will be a massive hip bump going on...
