Default Hang Power Clean Advice (form critique video)

What's good O-lifters!?

I have here a video of my workout from today, I did 3x3 HPC with 165lbs (i know it's not heavy, but it's greater than my body weight, lol). Just today, I am starting a power cycle after spending the last month or so doing basic strength workouts for lower body to prep for the more rigorous explosive lifts. My goals are not to be a strong weightlifter, but weightlifting is just a means to jump higher.

My goals all relate to jumping high, primarily from an approach off of one foot, but I am also interested in vertical leaping and two footed jumping. I'm hoping a power cycle of explosive weightlifting can help all aspects of my jumping.

So with that little caveat in mind (I'm a high jumper, not a weightlifter), I would appreciate everyone's two cents in regards to my form, training, rep structure, periodization, anything you can think of really.

Thanks in advance,
here's the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYpEsx2MdVY wfs- although i'm not wearing a shirt, it's summer in miami, give me a break!

nothing?

I guess I will keep these up for a month or two, until I stall out with them and then return to a primarily plyometric training regime.

not too bad. don;t just spaz down into the start position. push your hips back and bend the knees and set the position - shoulders slightly ahead of the bar and the knees, not behind it.

work on a quicker change of direction at the top - aggressive leg drive up, and then immediately pull under the bar. everying needs to be as fast as possible.

thanks for the advice! it should be easy to fix the start, but getting under the bar fasterwill probably take a bit of work. thanks again.
