Default Clean Critique Please

After 3 months of focusing on powerlifting I am finally reattempting to get my foot in the door of the world of weightlifting. I know it's just one measly clip of one power clean, but if anyone could give me any feedback at all, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Embed doesn't seem to be working on my computer, so here's the link just in case:

It's hard to see everything from this angle but it looks like you break the elbows a little too soon and that the bar might be too far forward on the extension. Also, your extension is a little too vertical. I'm not saying you need to throw your head back and really arch back to "whip" the bar, I'm saying there is room for you to open up a little more. Think about pushing through the floor a little longer.

Try some Halting Clean DLs and really focus on pushing the bar into your body: http://www.catalystathletics.com/exe...exerciseID=185
