well said, jonty, but after the fast clean this stands up with it very fast and it appears easy. I wonder what his best in training is? seems like it has to be around 260-265?[/quote]
To be honest, I think you get it, my comment may have been more directed to less experienced lifters who may be reading this. That’s one of the crazy things about the lifts, oftentimes if you do them right, they look very easy. It’s also hard to say what his training max is, oftentimes it’s only a few kilos between a very pretty made lift and a missed attempt where it looks like you didn’t have a hope in hell at it.[/quote]
Seconded. I remember watching Hossein Rezazadeh burst onto the scene in the Sydney games (his last C & J is the first lift in the video linked below) and being just shocked how easy his clean looked, even in a maximal lift.
Like you said, Jonty, a very pretty made lift would often be missed with just 5 kg more on the bar.
