Power clean to hang clean ratio?

This might be a dumb question, but if I can't hang clean 135lbs, does it also mean that I have no business power clean 135lbs as well?

Would an olympic lifting routine be ideal for an athlete?

I'm training for primarily athletic purposes. My sport is ultimate frisbee (hold the laughs), so it's non contact, but non contact in the way basketball is...there's a decent amount of bodying up and boxing out. Anyways, I'm trying to get stronger just for athletic purposes; I don't plan on...

Time to get archaic. Old competition rules apply, bend and break your spines to your hearts' content.

Olympic shoes for powerlifting

Figured you guys would know the most about oly shoes. I want to get some oly shoes to do squats and cleans in and wanted to know what shoe you would recommend. I have a little wider than shoulder width stance and I want a wooden heel. Thanks

Weight too forward on clean catch

Lately I've been jumping way back on both my cleans and snatches. I've always jumped a bit back and in snatch it is not even that big of a deal. The problem is at cleans, because the bigger the weight the more I am on my toes. This has all started when I had a pretty bad lifting day but decided...

Talking Your shoes? The best shoes?

Im not an Olympic Lifter by any means or do the Oly lifts, but i am however a huge fan of Oly high bar squats. The elevated heel, the upright position, the depth, it all motivates me. I was wondering which shoes you guys use to perform your front and back squat training.

Help a novice with cleans?

although i've been training seriously for almost a year now, I still can't get power cleans down. I seem to have a fear/inability to fire my elbows out and squat down when I rack the bar, and as a result it kind of forces me to lean back a bit whenever I catch the bar. what basically happens is I...

Power clean w/ Sumo stance?

I can't power clean with the generic stance due to flexibility issues, the same issues that made me turn to Sumo deadlift. I was wondering is it okay to power clean using a sumo stance, with hands inside the leg, instead of outside?
