It all comes down to timing and this takes many reps to get the timing and consistency in technique. Also, you cannot have any fear. You hit it on the nose when you said that you need to work with lighter weights to get the consistency and timing with improved technique. Keep working at it and get the help when you can. One thing you can do if you are unable to get to a qualified experienced coach is to film some of your training, send it to someone so that they can give you feedback. One thing to watch for is if you do it in a public forum you will get a myriad of responses which could confuse an athlete but again you may hear the same thing from many, which could help.Here are the percentages that I was using based off of your 1RM Back Squat. Not sure where I got these from as it was a long time ago.Front Squat - 89%C & J - 80%Power Jerk - 73.75%Snatch - 63.75%Press - 45%
Judas, I read Guy's commentary and the results of the formula as on showing that at least I am woefully inadequate, comparably, in the front squat. You are much more balanced than I, kudos to you for the hard work and diligence. As I state that, I don't know if improving your back squat that 10kg would truly be the right path. Perhaps improving the front squat that 10kg instead?
Have you thought of a plan to remedy your clean issue? I would bet it's completely mental at this stage. And 190 would be a serious clean at 105 in the 35+. As would a 145 snatch. To be frank, 140 and 120 are great numbers. Absolutely great numbers.
The Flip camera I use to record my lifts ran $100 USD at Sams Club. It has built in editing software that's easy to use. Given I don't have a hands on eye's on contemporaneous coach, it's a necessity. Just a thought.All the best, Arden
Check out the attached spreadsheet. It uses formulae developed from hopefully soon to be published research (Fry, Lucero, LeRoux et al. (author order/list may be different in published work) establishing the relationship between the front squat, back squat, snatch, clean and jerk, and total, on average, for national level qualifiers in America. Change the numbers for the squats (in top section) or lifts (in bottom section) under "Enter Data" and view the resulting equivalent in "Get result." Use kilograms of course. There is an "acceptable" range for the equivalents, but I don't have the number on hand.Hope I don't get in trouble for releasing this before the research is published.
