Default CJ advice needed. Video of 3 lifts at 90%

Any and all advice is appreciated.

Jeffrey,

The technique looks pretty good for the most part. You're bumping the bar out a little on the clean. You obviously want to keep the bar close but try to make the bar path more vertical. This also makes the 3rd pull much more difficult.

The Jerk looks strong. I'd suggest bringing your elbows down a little bit for an adjustment. Can't really see how the feet look but it looks like you have a stable split position.

FYI - It's much easier to see everything when the camera is further away like in the 3rd rep.

Thanks for the feedback. Any advice on the starting position. Sometimes I feel like I am too high, should I have my hips set lower?

Maybe just a little bit but it's not too significant. You can try starting with your hips lower to see how you like it.

Get your shoulders over more from the start and ensure your weight is in the centre of your feet. You're slightly behind the bar hence it bouncing out a bit. Re jerk, get your back leg back a bit further (but keep chest up throughout), this will balance/stabilise you more; the split is a bit short which reduces your room for error and means you're catching the bar high therefore limiting your max. Sorry if this is overload but also control the first pull and the dip a bit more, the next stage is where the explosion happens.
