I get so many damn things I think I could do to make it better that I need to just ask someone who knows and then work those exact things. Please feel free to make fun of all of my weird tics and pre lift movements as well as my lack of mobility.



Thank you so much for all you do. I'd be lost w/out the resources and information you provide!

You're banging the bar away from you in the second pull. Watch the vid, right after your hip bump, you need to keep that bar much closer to you, don't let it get away from you. Think of trying to keep your thumbs running up along your body until you get under and catch!!

Default Thanks Keith ..

Makes sense. I can feel that ... literally ... as I have started to get bruised. Thing is ... it wasn't always this way. I'm not sure how I developed this smashing.

My biggest hint was that I keep jumping forward to complete the lift. Or the bruising. Ha.

Well, now to attempt to FIX it.

Think of moving the bar back into your hips rather than moving your hips into the bar. Relax your arms and focus on engaging your lats instead to push the bar in against your body, and as you transition under, pull the elbows up and out.
