Relationship between squat clean and power clean

Hi guys. I'm not really much of an olympic lifter, but I'd really love to develop good power clean and squat clean form to help my training. I'm wondering, are these two the same exact movement, only differing in how low you go after/during the catch/rack of the bar? Or are there other subtle...

What it takes to challenge Farris

I decide to crunch the numbers from the qualifying totals. Assuming Farris only does 360: 77 - Vaughn - 346 94 - North, Fleming, Wilson - 379 105 - Shankle - 393 +105 - Mendes - 419 Obviously Vaughn is the only one close. If Farris does 365, it's game over. On the plus side, if these...

Can't learn power cleans, frustrated

I feel bad because usually I'm such a good student. But I feel like I'm just not getting this movement down right and not improving. Quick background: I've been practicing power cleans from the hang position below the knees. I also have the tendency to jump instead of just thrust with hips and...

Speed Under the Bar:How?

This question has racked my brain for months now: How do I get under the bar faster? I can easily power clean 105 possibly 110 yet I cant get under 120 to save my life. Here is what I think goes down during any pull, being a clean or a snatch, correct me if I am wrong. (from second pull to catch)...

My own little clean complex

My shoulder is pretty banged up so I am not doing over head this week, and in order to change it up I decided to mix a little complex together based on Shankles and Klokov. I know I am still a beginner and have no credentials in this sport, but hell I hit a clean pr doing it so I was pretty happy....

Pourquoi? ------- I read an article about someone doing this but apparently it was just a massive hoax including the photos. Some people actually believed it. What is this sorcery.

Gyms in NY

Currently training in my basement, but I'm to the point where I can't do Oly lifts anymore. No more bumper plates.

140 kg clean

Thought I'd post this since the snatch video got so much attention. I managed to clean 140 kg today. This time I also beat my previous record by 10 kg. The funny thing is I haven't front squatted more than 140 kg yet. The last time I went for max fs was a few months ago though. I was lucky to...

Finding a coach in the Sarasota FL area

Finally going to bite the bullet, lol. Learning how to master a jerk will obviously help me a ton in strongman, plus I just want to learn the lifts and maybe do some local meets in olympic lifting. Found a couple places that look ok, what is the normal price/etc and what should I really look...

Xiaojun Front Squats 230x2 @ 77 kgs.

I used the search function and couldn't find where this had been posted before. Front squatting 3xBW for a double is crazy--especially when it looks like a 70% lift. RMBCLsrktwI

What is the point of doing these in weightlifting. I saw klokov doing one and it didn't seem like it was for conditioning.

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.
