    Yeah it's hard to say where the line between a snatch pull and a snatch deadlift runs.

    My best clean is 145kg but my best deadlift is 250kg, i.e my clean is behind yours but deadlift way ahead....

    My pulling strength is just ridiculously ahead of my squat and Olympic strength. Today hit a snatch pull of 150% of my best snatch for a double (though judge for yourself if it was enough of a pull...

    Right before a competition is probably not the time to start experimenting with new things. There you need to do what you're comfortable doing and just nail that.

    If you want to be strong you got to train everything. There are quite a few videos of Chinese lifters doing rows and dips.

    I train upper body in unison with my Olympic lifts (though always after,...

    Not my first but the last time I competed was over 2 years ago. I do not have a coach and it's not that serious of a competition- just a club one not any sort of regional or national thing. I'm not...

    The weigh in is at noon with the competition to begin at 1:15 PM though as I'm in the heaviest...

    Putting squats first: good idea?

    So my strength has stalled for a while, haven't hit a PR in the squat for 5 months (and even then it was a long hard grind to add 5kg to my PR). Although my snatch technique needs a lot of work, at...
  • For what size individuals are supplement recommended daily intakes written?

    I'm an active weightlifter and as such take by fair share of food supplements.

    On multivitamins/BCAA's and whatnot it usually gives a recommended daily intake on the packaging but what I was...

    Yeah I always put them in the drier. But does the drying method have any effect on stains?


    I like the routine reference! But 3 shirts is too little as it forces you to wash during the week, plus...

    Athletic fit sounds like something that I'd like to try as I've found slim fit to still be a bit generous around the waist (as I go for 17 inch collars).

    I actually don't wear white shirts that much. I have various colored/patterned ones so any stains are less visible.

    I have heard of the pre-soaking thing and occasionally I do do it, though at...

    How often would you replace a formal shirt?

    I would like some advice from those of you who work white collar jobs or just generally wear a formal shirt to work every day.

    Most of my formal shirt collection originates from a little over 2...

    I don't and that's the point- I want to get out of accountancy and into corporate finance/IB/equity research/asset management. Do you have any idea how dull accountancy is?

    Depends on the company and role- some pay for it, some don't. I'm doing it out of my own pocket currently as the CFA is not strictly related to my current work (using it as a springboard for other...

    Should I focus on strength more?

    I train for Olympic weightlifting, though not at a competitive level of any sort.

    Same situation here and I also find that squatting with a relatively narrow stance works best for me. Anything wider is quite uncomfortable for my hips.

    Yeah, I find that the constant heavy squatting and pulling (albeit with lighter weights) of Olympic weightlifting really do help the deadlift. My max was about 200kg when I started doing more heavy...
