First attempts at clean

So I've studied some drills and tutorials off YouTube channel "California Strength", done some reading up and gave the clean a go for the first time today. It felt really good! I'm used to doing front squats as they're part of my PPL routine so I don't have a problem with them. Here's a video...

Help my Snatch

So I'm new to Olympic Lifting, been doing it for about 4 months. My Clean and Jerk has consistently gotten better, to the point I'm at 100Kg 1RM at 90kg. While it's nothing amazing I'm happy with it. My snatch on the other hand is just plain awful. My 1RM is 50kg. Even then, I've only ever...

Question Why are Iranians so strong?

Iranians have now become a force to be reckoned with in Olympic Weightlifting. What is it that makes them so strong?? It can not be mere coincidence - this phenomenon is the result of something that wasn't there before. I am guessing probably diet or the environment. Superior training too, but...

Whats a good way to get the powerclean up?

I'm pretty new to Power Cleaning. I just recently fixed my form (by using hook grip and keeping arms locked) and my Power Clean jumped from 120 to 160. So I started doing 5x3 with 135 pounds. And then every workout I added 5 pounds. I got to 155 pounds and couldn't complete 2 reps on the first...

I give up. I can't do hook grip.

I keep trying to use it, but it's pretty discouraging. I have pretty small hands for someone my height so that doesn't help. But it just feels ridiculously weak. The other day I tried to use hook grip for 5 x 205 RDL's and I could only maintain the hook grip for two reps before it gave out. On...
