Thanks for the tips, much appreciated. I think I know what thought progression caused the rapid drop and I am pretty sure I can get it fixed. Javier, you are right on, the bar is resting on my clavicle. This, I think, is a result of the high volume of BTN jerks I had been doing to convince myself I could jerk. When I moved the bar around front I was trying to replicate the elbow position and starting using the clavicle to support the bar so I could relax the arms and shoulders at least a little before the movement. As I recently began to move to higher weights (for me) I realized this would be a limiting factor. I actually spent my "rest," day today working front rack mobility and jerking the bar from the position you recommend. I will definitely try to take your advice and improve the rack position.
