    Nah your right dude.. Im still having some hip and thoracic mobility issues im working on.. You cud tell by the bar path that my weight shifts a bit forward

    Thanks man..Yea you know what, i think i was relying on the belt to keep me tight while unracking.. I usually dont use a belt but i thought it might help with the buttwink i had and it did but i guess it threw me off

    Butt wink could be so many different things. I personally hate a tight belt. It only gets super tight when I have a belly full of air.

    i am the opposite. I like a tight belt , but I also use a fabric/Velcro belt, so it may not be as bad. As far as the unrack, I use it on the initial push up, just gotta be careful not to get soft when you take the deep breath prior to the drop. I lost the butt wink when I started doing lots of good mornings to work up my lower back strength

  5. Scaled the weight back and fixed up my form now putting the weight back on.. From what I can see myself I gotta get my upper back a bit tighter and pull the slack out of the bar before lifting it

  6. That pull was pretty quick and though I'm not a fan of the camera angle, I think I would've passed the lift. Pulling the slack out will definitely help remedy the teeter totter pulling action. The other fix is glute tightness and hip drive. I actually don't think you lost any upper back tightness at all. You're trying to pick the weight up rather than driving your heels through the floor. That's why your ass shoots up and the whole pull is all lower back. Put your ass into it and you'll have a much easier time locking out big weights.

  7. ^^ truth!!
    Get a side angle though, the analysis will be much more clear.

  8. Red light for not having knees locked at the top and ditch the straps.

    I watched it in slow motion and yur rite.. Although In my head before the lifts I'm thinking "squeeze glutes and drive through your heels" I guess it just breaks down wen I'm actually pulling it.. And that teeter totter yur talkin bout, I noticed it killed my momentum and shifted my weight.. Gnna be workin on that.. I'll get some more vids up

    I usually chalk it up but I went my buddies gym and it's actually a "health club" so no chalk allowed.

    That still doesn't address the soft knee issue.

    Oh yea.. I mean I don't really know how to go at that. It's not something I've ever thought about.. Also don't think its that important if I'm not competing
