Ive been doing SS now for a few weeks now, and have been worried about my form with power cleans. I am having trouble getting the second pull correct when pulling from the floor. I do a lot better from hang. Videoed myself doing both with the same weight and I really let the weight move forward and pull with my arms when pulling from the floor. My catch is very slow as a result.)
Now I think the reason that my form is suffering is that 135 is just a bit to heavy right now for the cleans and I need to work up to it. I would rather start light and keep technique then be muscling the weight up with my arms.
So, any reason not to progress from hang cleans to full power cleans over the course of a few weeks?
