    I'm doing "starting strength" program. Squatting 4x5, 3 times a week.
    Adding 5kg/11lb every session, until now. This was 2.5kg increase.

    102.5kg / 226lb

    I'm not sure on elbows.
    Rippetoe says "keep your wrists straight", but then you cant keep elbows down.
    Smitty Diesel (thats his name I think), says "elbows down, chest up"

    So, how is my technique?
    Always keep your elbows tight. When they fly up it's a sign you're losing your upper back tightness. It will tend to tip you forward too and place more stress on your lower back. With that said, they looked pretty good. As long as they are staying about in the same position you're fine.

    Aw Kat,9 days late!

    Your hips are rising first,its a PULL,not a squat.Imagine tucking your shoulder blades into your back pockets.And come here,i gotta whisper (hump the bar).That is the best advice i have,hopefully it helps.



    Cant get youtube to work on my phone,which i recorded these wide-stance GMs with.They are uploaded on my photobucket.It looks as if my upper back is rounding,possibly lower back as well.Need to correct this before my spine snaps like a wire hanger.

    With Steve's advice I drew my feet in more and now I achieve better depth.
    I still think I need to work on it some more.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks for the thread. I've started learning power cleans, and any suggestions would be really appreciated. I realized when I got home from the gym the quality wasn't the best so if you guys would like better quality, please let me know and I'll redo it. These are at 40kg.

    one big thing im seeing is that you are almost pausing before the second pull. both pulls need to be one seemless move

    i'm not sure if you are getting your weight back enough.
    but, of course, it's hard to see. i'm blinded by your white thighs in those short shorts.

    yeah, probably true.
    i think maybe your knees may be coming forward too much.
    maybe you are pushing off with the forefoot too much rather than the heels?

    I'm a little scared about deadlift because I'm afraid that them cause and injury on me. I'm 15 year old. So I practise a little bit in my house with a bar and some water bottles. What do you think about my form?
