Are you talking about in the pulling position or receiving? Is that a good thing or bad thing...

I think I see what you mean. Tell me if this is what you are talking about; my back angle to the floor changes significantly as my hips rise faster than my chest/shoulders. Would the correct form be that my back angle to the floor shouldn't change at all until bar clears my knees and I start the second pull and, if anything, the back angle should open up not actually become closer to the floor...This is probably a result of me focusing quite a bit during last nights work out on getting my Shins vertical or beyond vertical prior to the second pull. This was something my coach had pointed out Saturday and was having me work on.

That's probably why I was having to step forward on several reps during my workout to maintain the weight OH.

I think you are right.
