Hello Coach: I been using my arms too much in my snatch/cleans. Been practicing snatch/clean pulls. should I keep my elbows straight or should I bend them at the top of the movement?

Thanks,
Jack

let the arms go along for the ride jack. don't pull with them and do not lock them in....as you do your pulls your shoulders will lead and then without pulling your arms will follow. the arms are like ropes....just keep them relaxed during these exercises. hope this helps.
