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.
