Posterior chain flexibility

Hi there! I'm not new to lifting but I have some problems about posterior chain flexibility. I wrote in this section of the forum because I've been fascinated by olympic lifting, especially for the deepness of athlete's squats in the clean and jerk, so I decided to post in this section because...

Only a 22.5kg difference between best back and front squat?

My best beltless back squat is 183kg and my best front squat is 160.5kg, isn't that kind of weird? I have squatted 190kg for a very easy double before, but that was wearing a thick powerlifting belt. Do numbers like this mean anything, or is I am just a better front squatter than back...

Left wrist pops out of the catch in the clean

Here's a video: 8wR-NxKtACw I had a wrist injury back in December, but I feel all better now. However, I'm guessing I lost some ROM which is why my wrist is coming out when I catch a clean. I don't really know any more than that. Any suggestions for a way to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Small feet. Order women's shoe?

I wear size 7 for my Inov8 F-lite 195's, and my regular day-to-day New Balance walking/running shoes. I have a pair of Wei-Rui Challenger weightlifting shoes in size 6.5 since on their site they suggested ordering half a size smaller than normal shoes, for the fit to be snug. Now, my $50...

Running program and snatch progression?

Hi all... this is my first post :) I started getting into competitive oly lifting recently and just started looking for coaches. My question is regarding building up my snatch (current only a measly 135 lbs) My bw is 130lbs, however i'll most likely cut down to 56kg (123lbs) for competition and...

From PL to Oly Squats, any tips/advice

I've recently decided to start training oly style squats instead of pl squats. I've stripped 100lbs from the bar and going to add weight in a SS approach. Any advice on this style? Do PL routines like Sheiko work for the oly lifts?

Light weeks and Heavy weeks

Hey guys I have another question for you "more experienced" lifters. I haven't started any light weeks until now. I was lifting the other day and failed on 3 of my sets (the last set). I was wondering if this means that I need to give my body sometime to rest and and do a light week. I usually give...

Wink Tips on jerking

After admiring the awesomeness of the olympic lifts for some time i've slowly started incorporating them into my training. I've done powercleans for years and I found it fairly easy to transition into full cleans but i'm having a real ****ty time with the jerk. I just can't get a feel for the bar...

Behind The Neck Jerk?

I'm wondering if there's really any merit to them, or if anyone on here does it? Convinced by a Jamie Lewis article I tried it today, and while I had no shoulder pain lifting, I had trouble getting the bar down from the lockout. I also read a post by Christian Thibadeau that said that even pro...

Power Snatch Versus Power Clean & Push Press

Hi everyone, I'm changing up my routine from a Bill Starr type of setup (which I've followed for years with good results) to a one lift a day type setup where I just hammer the crap out of a key lift each workout. One day is for each power lift, one day for overhead pressing, and I wanted to...

Critique my clients

Hey guys, I've dabbled on and off in "the lifts" for a few years now, and just recently got serious about coaching others (been a general strength and fitness coach since 2005). Figured it's always good to have extra sets of eyes and varying input, so I thought I'd post vidz of the people I train. ...

Whenever I snatch or clean, they come out as power snatches and cleans, never do I go lower. If I attempt a 60kg snatch, I fail because I try to power snatch it, something is stopping me from going lower so I can catch the bar. It's not an issue of flexibility. Are there any specific exercises...

Starting oly at the beginning of March

I've got a powerlifting comp on Feb 26th, and then I make the switch over to weightlifting. I have a few problems - I'm horribly immobile and can't even begin to do an overhead squat or full snatch. I do mobility work daily to address this. I'm also not feasibly able to get coaching, as the nearest...

first 100 kg snatch

Beat my previous snatch record by 10 kg today lol. It's all behind the technique. bLrvlqfisFU This is a 4 month progress from empty bar to this. What do you think? IMO I should be covering the bar more and pull the bar upwards not back. I tend to do that with cleans too. A really bad habit.

Assistance Exercise Programming

After my next competition I am completely "renovating" how I am training. Too much maximal weights in the squat and dead lift (I wanted to get to 500lbs in this lift, but now I don't care) have rendered me slow and my second pull acceleration is beginning to deteriorate. I am planning on basing all...

hip injury from jerk (possibly). any idea what this is?

I think I've tore a small stabilization muscle in my left hip with the jerk. It the inner hip/groin area if squeeze my legs together and I'm also unable to jerk. Jerking or doing lunges causes similar pain. Oh yeah, doing leg raises and crunches also causes pain in the same area. I can squat...

Lifts critique

Hello, I've been doing Olympic lifts for 7 months now. I have a coach, generally things are going well, except for some flaws. Snatch- my hips are late, if I use them when the barbell is at knee level lift looks, feels and is very very good. Unfortunately, for some reason this happens pretty...
