Front Squatting 4 times a week

weightlifting notation

Hi! I am relatively new to WL. I was wondering what the "+1" means here: Clean & Jerk – 70% x 3+1 x 2, 75% x 3+1 x 2

Accidental Powerclean Form Critique

mN4HzdgPlaM These are the kind of crap lifts that happen when my coach is not around. Other than the obvious pulling with arms, going on toes, humping the bar problems. What else is wrong with this lift? I meant for this to be a clean, but my speed under the bar is garbage, any tips, drills,...

Critique my snatch form

For a strange reason I'm able to clean my 90%, but when I attempt my 100% or a new PR, I just power clean the bar =-( Moreover, my snatch technique is not as flexible as I want to. Do I just 'drop' inside the bar? bAWz7q1etco

Front Squat form check

So the Texas State Championship was this past weekend

Was my second competition, didn't go as well as my first one back in July. I guess this is kind of a rant or war story, so sorry if tl;dr Competed in Open 77 kg, compared to being a Junior at my first meet. I weighed in at 76.7, which is weird cause my scale in my dorm said I was 75.6 the same...

Should I drop 3kg for my first competition? (in less than two weeks)

I would have to drop a little more than 3 kg of my weight to fit in the -85 kg category for my first competition in less than two weeks. I'm not quite sure how much water I'd be able to drop but probably not 3 kg and shedding fat in that little time could be a bad idea since I'm quite lean already....

Cool documentary on Olympic weightlifting (Russian)

You get to watch some cool training and competition clips of Russian lifters, interviews, kinesiology stuff, testing of muscular power and even they show the great vertical jumping ability of Olympic lifters (they carry out an experiment which is a bit skewed for my liking but is still cool to...

How's my overhead squat looking? (vid)

Weight was 185 lbs. Did this at the end of my workout, so maybe could have done a little more if I was fresh. Goal for the first part of this year is to do 225 on overhead squat. I'm not a pro at this by any means, so please let me know your comments and suggestions. 4Dvec6qVEG0 ...

What size heel do Adidas Power Perfect 2's have?

I own a pair, but I don't know how to measure the effective heel, ie figure out how much the heel is raised up at the top vs at the front, and so how much it actually lifts the heel off the floor. I read somewhere here that the heel is 1.25 inches high - too much for my low bar squats and...

Power clean program

I've been doing it in the Rippetoe format, with 5 sets of 3. I think I'm gonna hit a wall on this, so I'm thinking of doing more volume (8 sets of 3) and also do it more often, having light days with something like 80% of the 8x3 weight for 3x3. What do you think? Note that I'm not actually...

Clean and Front Squat check

I got some videos done today: 1st two working sets of cleans, and a set of front squats. I'd like some critiques. It's very visible in the first video that I jump forward in the clean (something I've been aware of for quite a while, but not sure how to correct it, assuming it is actually a fault...

220 kg CJ @ 85 kg (2kg over current WR)

This was done in a local meet, so it's not an official WR. Here Oleg Perepechenov clean and jerks 220kgs at 34 years old. He is the current 77kg WR holder in C&J. He also snatched 175kg at this competition, which put his total at 395kg - 1kg over the current WR. x73JJ1DdYfE

My mobility really sucks ass

Basically wondering if it's a common thing. I spoke to a friend of mine who competes nationally in WLing and he said everyone at his gym has always just been able to do a full snatch. I have terrible ankle mobility and am bad in the rest of my body in general (hips, shoulders, spine, etc) and am...

Snatch grip deadlift width

I've been into snatch grip deadlift lately, so I am really confused on how wide should my grip be for this lift. I am 5`3 my grip is slightly outside the ring. Is this too wide for me? Thanks!

Post FS/ 2008 Nike Romaleos Size 9

Hello fellow OLs! I have decided to let me like new Nike Romaleos go for sale as I need to sell some items to pay for college. I have a pair of Romaleos in a size 9. I wore them twice in the past 3 years I have owned them. They are still very clean (like new) and the laces are still like new. No...

Hi folks, I'm just starting with weightlifting, it'd be great help if the more experienced than me can check this video (no comments about the equipment please :-)). It was last set, before it I went with the weights up to 65kg x 1. What I myself noticed is at the hips it seems the left side...

1RM estimates for Olympic lifts

I heard that while the 1RM equations for lifts like squat, bench, and deadlift are generally close to the actual 1RM, but that the equations don't work for Oly lifts and its derivatives. How true is that statement?
