Pause In The Power Receiving Position

It’s common to pop right up out of power cleans, snatches and jerks, but try holding in the power receiving position a second instead, at least some of the time.
This gives you a chance to evaluate your receiving position and recognize errors that have negatively affected it—moving immediately out of it masks these things much of the time and allows them to become habit and therefore much harder to fix.
With power snatches and jerks especially, standing immediately can also cause a soft lockout. You’re better able to secure a solid lockout if you’re not complicating the timing of the receipt.
