    No, they cannot handle dropped weights. I have used them several times, but wouldn't suggest them over boxes for drops.

    I power jerk because it tends to feel more comfortable. You can also squat jerk more, you just have to be more precise with where you place the bar.

    Not Squinky, but perhaps he meant world-class athlete?

    Which makes me wonder, Glenn, do you feel that a person can achieve medals at an international stage without illegal performance enhancers...

    He said that being tall places you at an anatomical disadvantage over shorter lifters. Longer legs make squatting harder. Longer arms mean jerking is harder. For Klokov, it doesn't seem to make much...

    While I agree that Squinky was right in his point, consider that North has lifted 160kg in a meet and 161kg in the gym. Not a huge discrepancy there.

    Also, Binay and Hui are just so fast and...

    If you are taught properly, the power snatch is a little better in my opinion. As several other people said, it's more explosive and you cannot really get away as much with muscling the lift like...

    Hand placement doesn't help, really, I have tinkered around a bit with it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    If a train leaves Chicago at 10:30am local time and another train leaves San Diego at 4:30pm local time what is the mass of a dozen oranges?
  • Shoulder soreness from jerks & snatches

    As the title suggests, I am getting soreness from jerks especially but also snatching.

    The trouble basically started late last year when I was doing a lot of BTN presses and jerks. However, I...

    After an extended lay-off from here, as well as squatting, I have returned to both places.

    My knees aren't bothering me from squatting, but I have cut my depth a little to just below parallel....

    Seconding Gewaltiger's suggestion to keep your hips down. If it helps, think of it as in you are squatting the bar off the ground more so than deadlifting it. You wouldn't squat with your hips way up...

    When I train early, I just drink a shake with milk and fruit and a coffee. I do make a point of waiting at least an hour before I leave for the gym after waking.

    Varbonev is right, and the Russian sports scientists back him up as far as the squat thing goes.

    I still think the Bulgarian system is crazy unless you are a full-time lifter, but I digress. If I...

    I am going to take a stab here and say that he probably needs to shrug the bar up with his traps a bit ;).

    I have taken tons of analgesics and stimulants and cowboy'd up. I could hardly walk after and I want to fix whatever the hell this knee issue turns out to be.

    Laxxer, yes shoulders over the bar. However, you lack the back arch as I had mentioned. Perhaps it's a flexibility thing then.

    Yes, you want to 'scoop' the bar with a knee re-bend. It is...
