The first pull is usually where folks lose good form on their cleans. By building good form and strength in this area, we stand a greater chance of successful cleans. The biggest issue folks have here is they tend to turn this into a conventional deadlift with the hips being higher in the air at the start. Fight that tendency and treat each lift as if you full intended on cleaning the weight. Don’t forget to get a hip hop at the top when you VIOLENTLY extend the hips.
