Great post from @catalystathletics! Original post: "Don’t make the mistake of locking your elbows in the pull of the snatch and clean. . This may seem to solve the problem of pulling early with your arms, but it just creates another problem. . This will cause the bar to swing away from your body as you finish the extension - there will be a delay before you’re able to begin using the arms to guide the bar and body past each other in close proximity. . Once it starts swinging, all you can do is try to pull it back in, but by then the damage has been done, and you lose much of the ability to pull yourself down because the pulling action is instead pulling the bar back. . Allow the arms to relax and the weight of the bar to stretch them long as you pull. This will allow an immediate transition into the active pull under the bar with the arms before the bar can swing out. . Tag a friend who pulls in a side triceps pose."
