Clips from today



Right click on each clip and save before watching to avoid errors!



Powerclean + PowerJerk + splitjerk, one of the better singles from today with 175lbs. Powerjerk form is much improved from before, no longer jumping forward, bar goes staright up. But I still can't get my torso forward enough to have the bar behind my head and hips back. Lack of flexibilty <:frowning:


Elbow lock on splitjerk not working today, form still sucks...



hear the bar squeak...

4 stage Cleanpull complex with 243lbs, 2 sets shown. Back still kinking a bit, but at least double knee rebend is working now on the pulls, but not quite as much as when I powerclean

Colin,

Man, ask the gym to play some more hardcore music. It sounds like too "peaceful" like. ... If there is even music :frowning:


#4

Well the music is quieter on that side of the gym, and the camera mic doesn't capture it well. I actually prefer it if there was no music, I like it nice and quiet :slight_smile:

Just the sound of plates rattling, bumpers bouncing and shoes smacking the platform is all I need


#5

Colin,
I notice that you not using your legs much on your high pulls, are you doing this on purpose, or like me are you over anticipating the heavier weight and changing your form as a result?

Rick


#6

My double knee rebend doesn't work as well on pulls just yet, but it's getting there.

The first 2 parts of the set are just dealdifts, so no leg rebend there, but the legs work more on the 2 last parts - more proper pulls.

But like I said I do these better with a snatch grip, cleangrip I have problems with.

Then again seeing how the German and Chinese olylifters do heavy deadlift pulls, with totally differnet form to the proper lifts who knows :slight_smile:


#7

My double knee bend is doing the same thing. I'm fixing it by doing jump high pulls.


#8

I think I might just do them slower first, keep ing smooth and flowing and then speed up as I get better
