How do your hang clean and front squat look?

my front squat is alright its past 315 my hang clean is decent not sure if im not quick enough or what
It's usually not a matter of pure strength, but getting all the movements/timing/technique coordinated perfectly....which is the Achilles heel of Oly lifts. It sounds like you may need to work on just what you said...dropping under the bar quicker. It's almost like you have to let go of the bar for a split second and let your hands/arms just rotate around it at the point where it has zero velocity and quicky get under it. Easy to describe, hard to do I had a lot of success just working on getting under the bar quicker by working from the hang cleans with the emphasis on timing the pull and drop better.
If you're a strong guy, you may be inadvertently sort of reverse curling the bar instead of dropping under it...it may help you get the bar up for the power clean, but having to lift it with a reverse curl motion will slow you down and won't let you drop under the bar fast enough.
