I'd agree with Greg. This question comes up every time we run a coaching course because to most people it does look like the bar bounces off the thighs when a good lifter is doing it.

we always describe it to our lifters as the "thigh brush" and also explain that the bar touching the thighs during the second pull is a CONSEQUENCE of good technique (keeping the bar close) not the goal in itself.
