didn't watch the video yet, but - you don't want your feet hitting at the same time your elbows lock out. with regular speed video/observation, it may sometimes look like this is happening, but the feet should be reconnecting well before that. they should be off the platform for no more time than it takes to move them from the pulling to receiving position. it would be nice if you could turn the bar over and lock it out in this little time, but it's not going to happen.
