Quicker pull under. Your arms are a bit stiff during the pull and then your elbows come back instead of up and out as you start under the bar. Punch the legs and hips up together and immediately move the feet out and pull yourself down to the bar with the elbows high and out. That will keep you close to the bar and allow you to spin the elbows around as fast as possible. Otherwise, just getting your balance consistent.
