    I really like the clean+clean and jerk complex. Gives you a bit more fatigue before the jerk as well as extra practice in the clean.

    So many different ways to measure "best" so that you can't really objectively raise one guy above the rest.

    I have massive respect for Anatoly Pisarenko due to his extreme efficiency.

    I've run into a weird problem with my snatches: it seems that I've forgotten how to power snatch!

    So I've been doing roughly the same program (with minor tweaks) for a while now and I think it might be time to try something new. I've gotten results but progress has somewhat stalled.

    The clean felt alright, thats 10kg below my max but the jerk is the wobbly part. I feel like...

    Its not that close a grip I think. I don't like wide grip bench press as it doesn't agree too well with my shoulders, this is the width at which I feel strongest personally, about a thumbs length...

    Has anyone maxed out on snatch grip deadlifts? If so, what is your ratio of that to conventional deadlifts?

    It is supposed to fly into your neck, though not your chin. What you don't want to be doing is catching the bar on your wrists. You will have to let go of the bar and have it sit on just the tips of...

    I do front squats 2x and back squats 2x a week as I train for Olympic weightlifting. After a while of dedicated training I have gotten my front squat to about 94% of my back squat.
