afew things for you to work on -

in the start/1st pull, flare your knees out - don't put them straight ahead. this will allow you a better posture

don't throw your head back at the top - keep it in line with the rest of your body

don't roll you shoulders forward. turning the elbows out is just rotation of the upper arm - no scapular protraction. keep those shoulder blades neutral
