Finally, it was an at home workout day yesterday since it’s spring break and I wanted to work on my Olympic Lifting Skills. So, below is a video my son filmed for me to see the “hip drive” on my clean. What I am referring to is “are my hips meeting the bar?” Here is how it’s supposed to look Hang Clean plus a Push Jerk.

This is a new garage for us and I did manage to hit the garage door opener on the jerk which is why it’s jerky, hahaha. Good news is that I didn’t break it! Anyway, this barbell sequence was taken from Rudy and I sent it to a friend just for another set of eyes. I believe in looking at this that the barbell should not come forward at all and that I need to physically make contact at the hip and there should be no press out at the top of the jerk. Guess the only way to fix this is to practice it correctly!

What do you all think?
