In the sn**ch and clean (and pulls), the goal is to keep the shoulders at least slightly in front of the bar until the bar is around mid-thigh level.
.
This doesn't mean that the hips won't start opening a little earlier, but the shoulders should never be behind the bar before this approximate point.

When doing sn**ch or clean pulls, the bar should never move away from the body - use these as practice for creating the proper contact between the bar and body without causing or allowing the bar to swing forward in reaction.

In the split jerk, ideally the front shin is vertical or even slightly behind (this photo shows a suboptimal position with the knee in front of the ankle).
.
This creates a stronger structure to maintain the position and prevent shifting forward in the split.

Planks are a valuable exercise for any athlete who needs to stabilize the trunk against unwanted movement (to be clear, every single athlete on earth). However, plank ex*****on is more often than not poor, which limits the effectiveness.
.
(Top photos) Keep the upper and mid back extended as well as possible - don’t hunch. The upper and mid back should be independent of the lower back, which should be held in neutral position with the abs.
.
(Bottom photos) When using weight, center the weight over the lower back, NOT over the upper back - you’re fooling yourself if the weight is being largely supported by the arms.
.
In general - create a straight line running through the ankle, hip and shoulder - don’t pike or sag.
.
Keep the lower back neutral rather than tucking the pelvis under (posterior rotation) - this will be the position you have to stabilize your trunk in when lifting.

Trent ending the cycle with a 10# sn**ch PR. At 88kg/195# as a 77kg masters. He also hit a 10# CJ pr as well. (107kg)

[01/04/17]   If anyone wants to compete in an official Weightlifting Meet, this is your first opportunity of the year to do so. For women, there are new weight classes that have no records set, and any successful lifts completed in those categories will set the NM state records. Another local meet will be held in February, more details about that one coming soon.

The weight on the barbell is less important than how you move the barbell with weight on it.

"Too often I find athletes sustain injuries because they were more concerned with HOW MUCH weight was on the bar rather than how well they moved. This needs to change. Our training has become too sensitive for public approval. We bypass fundamental movement skills and instead place our emphasis on how many plates we can put on the bar. We place athletes in great danger and risk of injury by taking this strategy. Crawl, walk, RUN. Great athletes lift massive weight with amazing technique. Yes they are strong - but you can only reach your true potential in the iron game when you emphasize technique." - Dr. Aaron Horschig
