(1) Torso is not getting upright in the second pull. This means bar doesn't get to hip crease with your torso vertical which leads into

(2) you're still bouncing the bar off the front of your hips which is kicking it forwards.

(3) You have to jump forwards to get under the bar. Big no-no. If anything you should be staying near the same place or going backwards.

(4) Arms never bend. After the second pull you should be bending your arms.. the bar should be whizzing right by your face. If you keep them straight there's no way you're going to get enough power to go heavy because of the semi circular path the bar takes when your arms are straight.

Have you read Greg's book on this?
