When you guys go for the pull and shrug during the power clean, should you shrug it like you are doing a high pull?
For me the shrug comes quite naturally. If i can keep the bar close to my legs and body throughout the lift and violently extend the hips as the bar shoots up I just naturally seem to shrug and my elbows seem to just whip around.
Once i managed to get the first and second pull down the third pull took care of itself.
The shrug as I understand it serve to almost pull yourself under the bar to rack it. Rather than pull the the bar further up.
A video of your Power Cleans could be helpful in critiquing your form
You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
ok, ill see if I can get a video next time, members of the football team were helping me today, they say everytime I shrug it, I should be thinking of shrugging it into a high pull then getting right under it, my elbows are positioned way better by doing so, so ill try to get a video next time
if anyone else has input on this, it would be appreciated
