I tried teaching myself powercleans this past summer and gave up because my form was bad and I couldn't seem to correct it no matter how hard I try.
I understand all the movements, except the part where your elbows come up and your arms are parallel with the ground, like in this picture:
I have no clue how the hell you guys hold your arms like. It hurts like hell and I don't even get close. I don't knw why but my arms just don't bend that far back. I can just barely couth my shoulders with my fingertips alone, I don't even come close with the back of my hand. Am I the only person like this, or am I missing something.
