I have been training the Olympic Lifts for about a year now and would appreciate any and all feedback. Is my bar path not vertical enough? Thanks in advance.

Well during the 1st Pull, the bar needs to be making an angle back towards your body then you want the bar coming up. I think on the 2nd Pull, the bar path looks fine.

It looks like you're starting too far over the bar. In that starting position you want the shoulder right above the bar or just slightly in front. Yours are pretty far in front. Set your hips a little lower and pull your chest up more. That should help set you in a better position.
