The dump touch! See this all the time with shirted lifters and very frequently with raw lifters as well. We want to AVOID this because either of the options I outline here as a way someone is going to press this bar up is not optimal

My suggestion can be found on our youtube channel! You need to create upper back tightness which most fail to do. Leg drive plays a part. Nailing the take out and touch point play a part. Theres a lot of potential kinks in the chain but putting yourself in a good allignment in the bottom position is what we’re after

If you’re not sure whether or not this is happening to you, please email us and we can work it out together!
