I'm doing the progression and just trying to get the barbell to bounce up to my chest and then back down. I thrust my hip but can't really get the bar up to that upright row position. Theyre called high pulls I believe
Are you talking about hip contact with the barbell? If this your first time learning this, I don’t suggest learning that right now.

If you been weightlifting for awhile, then it’s a technique that requires driving the bar as close as possible into your hip while extending - takes practice.

However you need to work on your 2nd pull first and extending.Almost like you’re trying to get the scarecrow arms but driving in almost a row position at the top.

Then again, if your pull Is powerful enough - you trying to your chest shouldn’t be a concern. More so working to get under

who’s coaching you?

here’s a video for the hip contact:

working with a plyometrics coach to max my explosiveness for basketball. He was telling me to make hip contact which was tricky. I think it's just a coordination thing with my arms not knowing what to do and being my first time.

I couldn't get it down so he made me do db snatches instead which I was able to do albeit not too clean as the dumbbell is too far away from my body.

My wife told my hair that i have left at the crown of my head is super thin now and has gotten larger. |l

I think it's time I start researching clippers and accept my fate that I need to shave my head now.

I'm noticing that my hair on top and especially the front is thinning a bit. Not too noticeable but i see it. Not even stressing about it.

The latter. I'd say always strive for advancement.

In our meeting My supervisor kept saying ”to make things easier on Stopcappin , Stopcappin is having to jump through hoops because of you , etc.”(I’m not) .... so it makes it looks like I was complaining / snitching ?

Horrible supervisor for pointing you out and basically making you the fall guy for any backlash for what he or she was saying smh.
