This is my first post, so I find it right to present myself and my history.
My name is Kristian Paev, I'm from Bulgaria, 21 yrs old.
For many years I've participated in youth&amateur football (soccer), until the summer of 2013. I've had an ACL injury on my left knee, but I'd say I'm totally OK now and not restricted in any way (apart from kneeling on hard surfaces).
I've decided to give up on my dream for career in football, so I needed a new challenge. I practice olympic lifts for 3 or 4 months now, and I could say they are my new love
However, I'm struggling to 'get it right'. I am really inspired from your work and dedication, so I find no better place to post my questions.
Your cleans actually look very good. A couple minor points that will help: focus on transitioning faster at the top of the pull - extend and move under right away, as all a single continuous action. Turn the elbows over faster. When you squat under, don't sit back quite so far - try to sit the hips down under the shoulders. You may be getting pushed back the little bit you are by immobile ankles, so if that's the case, keep working hard on improving your ankle mobility.
