Hi Arden,It sounds like we are similar lifters, I have too alot more pulling strength than pushing strength. I am finding the discomfort of receiving the bar in the fs position on cleans and jerks to be the hardest part of O lifting, as well as getting real low on snatches.I find that I am not lifting as much as I can in the O lifts due to technique and discomfort instead of lack of strength. I can deep squat 365lbs for a triple, deadlift 495lbs for a triple, and front squat 275 for 1, so I know I can lift and squat decent weight but I need the technique and the comfort in my wrists and collar bone to get better. I find my speed is not an issue at this stage in the game.I am visiting a weightlifting club today, and hope to start getting some coaching/training, they do video tape as well so I soon will have some videos to post!congrats on your families athletic success and all the best for their comps!
I was working again on getting my elbows out and my shoulders over the bar. I hope I'm getting a little better?I know i'm still pulling the weight way too high. I'm not sure how to correct that?
Wow, great workouts Arden! Don't get too beat up.Your snatch training goes very nicely, don't you think? I've been wondering about the boxes. In the hang snatches from just above the knee, you start the movement from the boxes. Why not deadlift the bar from the floor and lower it again the the starting point just above the knees? It would seem to me a better way to train the pull from that point without the support of the boxes, wich is not there in the actual lift. Maybe you think differently?Cool snatch pulls, well done!

I'm not sure how to correct that?I think you're doing great Arden, I'm afraid you can't do something right now that will be a giant leap ahead again.Wow again on the load in the push jerk/presses off the boxes. Wouldn't it be an idea train to start to train jerks after the cleans, at least for a couple of sets? the lighter load will give you full control to practice, and it will give great satisfaction to "finish the lift". All the best,Sjaak
You got an envious garage! Love the jerk boxes. Did you use the plans from Les Simonton's website? Or did you just make them yourself. I would imagine that you probably cut the tree down yourself (by hand) and milled the lumber in your back yard. Then you fired up the blacksmith's stove and made some nails to nail it all together Just ribbing you a bit. Keep up the great work and if you get a chance share some knowledge of anything that you built for your Garagemahal!
