Looking downrounding upper back in the starting position

This mistake is frequent especially with rank beginners who lack confidence. When they are not sure about what they have to do they will invariably look down and bundle on themselves. This is a horrendous pulling position! It is impossible to develop a lot of force this way and it's dangerous for the back.

The athlete must look slightly above his eyes level and keep the upper back tight. I always tell my athletes to take a "beach position". The chest is out, shoulder blades pulled back and back tight. Obviously you must make the technical corrections, but also consider that if the athlete doesn't understand the movement he will have a tendency to adopt this starting position. So it's your duty to make sure the he understands the task at hand.
