A lot of problems in the pulling movements off the floor (deadlift, clean, snatch, highpull) happen in the first few inches on the way up and again on the way down. The order of operations and which muscles do the work are important details to practice. At the beginning of the pull many people are at their end range of flexibility and holding position can be very hard. In that hard work though, is the improvement, working at your end range for perfect position will make you stronger and more flexible at the same time. Hooray for taking weights off the floor.
