Also keep your arms straight. You are initiating pulls with bent arms, and as they straighten and get the slack out your hips rise.

Work on this for a few workouts and we'll see how it goes.
I think I'm getting better on the shins I've got some pretty big abrasions today. I will definitely focus on that Steve. I think think keeping the arms straight is probably on of my fundamental problems that I haven't noticed or been told about.
