Thanks Greg. This thread has been very helpful to me. Between you and my coach I think I am putting two and two together and getting a really good first pull. I'm extending through my knees to the mid-hang position, holding the bar in real tight with my lats, at which point my shoulders are well forward of the bar, then I hit my jump/scoop/shrug and boom weight pops up. Good things happen when you set yourself up with the correct first pull!!

I know what you mean.

Got it.
