    I'm having a bit of trouble with cleans, as I build up the weight I find I hard to get under the bar, I'm getting the bar high enough just not dropping quick enough, I think it's just a confidence thing and all in my head, just wondering if anyone has any advice that might help me out?

    Have you tried doing cleans from blocks or from the hang? Also, think about using your hips to deliver a "pulse" of force to the bar at the top and immediately relax, that cue kinda worked for me to retreat the hips but I'm still pretty slow. Also, if you're coming up on your toes and hanging around for ages in the air ("triple extension") then that'll impair your descent.

    Watch the end of this guy's pull a few (hundred) times

    Bar goes up, you go down!
