Patric did you manage to fix this problem? I'm having the same problem and I am trying to figure out how to fix it.

Re: Dave
Thank you; this'll be a great help.
It probably goes without saying, but remember your cues for a FS. Elbows up, big chest of air, look STRAIGHT ahead, valsalva. For some reason, I see a lot of people try to FS looking down without a breath.

Of course sets of 3 will be better for your clean. Mix in some singles and doubles, too.
