Coach-
Even with minimal weight, I have a very though time keeping my elbows pointed straight ahead. They always pop out to the sides, away from my chest. I've tried wider and narrower grips; only the narrow grip seems to help. I know i'm probably tight in some muscle group in my back/shoulder area. Any tips/stretches to improve on this would be great. Thank you.

on the jerk this is much better. on the cln and fs of course you have to get the elbows up. this can be due to shoulder flex and or wrist flex. there are a couple of stretches that can help. drop me an e mail at mikesburgener@mac.com and i will send you a couple of jpg's that will show the stretch. good luck, coach b
