almost try and jump as you straighten the legs and drive with the hips. the momentum you generate should carry the bar up well past your waist so you can drop and catch it. you need to get your elbows under the bar and up to catch it more efficiently. when i first tried cleaning 90kg (approx.200lbs???) i wasn’t dropping low enough to catch it, but i can do it now. posture is important, keep your back locked straight right from the start, otherwise you can f**k it right up!
