I use the exact same form and it works great for me tooOriginally posted by LATMAN
Pauly- The form I have been having great success with on the conventionals is with my feet very close together. I have my heels about 3" apart and my toes pointed out slightly. I have my shins about 3 or so inches away from the bar at the beginning of the pull. I always seem to figit around and take like 20 breaths before I actually go down for the bar. Once I take in my biggest "air" I reach down for the bar with a little knee bend. Once I have my grip(which is very quick) I kind of swing my hips down and forward. Kind of give you some momentum to start pulling back. Usually it turns into a mostly back lift as that is where I am strongest. At the top if you can just remeber to stop thinking about pulling back so much, but just thrust the hips forward you should lock it out. I also rarely let my air out until the very top or even after lokout.
