    If this is the finish then he needs to be standing. But maybe he stood in the next frame?? Dunno…

    I agree with Giselle .. his feet should be together if this is “THE FINISH”. otherwise as Damon would say .. Put some weight on that bar

    I think what Dan is talking about is over-extension and the weight being slightly forward. His lumbar is not in a good position, spine is not stacked bone-on-bone in a neutral position. Also, it’s a bit hard to tell from this angle, but the bar seems to be a bit forward. If this were a max attempt, there’s a chance he wouldn’t be able to recover. My $0.01 (economy doesn’t let me give 2)

    To add to Pablo’s commentary, I think Hector is late in pushing his head through the plane of his shoulders, he still has his neck cocked back to let the bar clear his face and the shoulders look a little rotated forward (elbow pits are facing in instead of forward). I’m also seeing the bar a bit forward. With head through, I think that would help bring the spine into a more neutral position, square up the shoulders, and get the bar over the center of gravity.
