Hey, nice lifting.

You do jump forward a bit in your cleans, though. Do you find that the bar is making contact with your lower thighs? If so, be a bit more patient in your 2nd pull...the bar should brush a bit higher on the thighs. For your next video, try placing the camera at an angle.

Your first pulls seem to be a bit inconsistent as well. I think your hips rose noticeably faster than your shoulders in the first rep, while your back angle remained fairly constant in the 2nd.

In the jerk, it was tough to tell, but I think you probably threw the weight forward based on how you recovered. Make sure to stay on your heels through the dip & drive and don't slouch forward (keep a good, strong posture).

Good luck!
