    I've been getting into Olympic lifting the last couple of months and have just started taping myself to check my form, however, I can only see so much, so was hoping you guys might be able to help me out.



    Some things I think from watching it:
    - I can get a lot lower on the catch, need to work on pulling myself under more
    - I think I don't bring the bar into my body
    - Can have a tighter back on the set up

    Any other tips you guys could help me with?

    Thanks in advance!

    When you're getting set, think about pushing your chest out. That should help with the rounded back.
    Shrug your shoulders to your ears during the second pull
    You'll want to land on your feet and have the bar land on your shoulders at the same time. You land, then the bar hits. Try to bring your elbows around faster

    Hope that makes sense

    Just noticed, on your catch you need to bring you butt out more so your knees aren't so far in front of your toes, that may be why you looked a little off balance

    That all makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the tips
