I am currently lifting at my local College in the Football Weight Room (Div 2) my lifting partners brother is a coach so he gets us in. Last night, I got involved in a conversation with some of the players on how I thought some Pro Football players could Power Clean mid to high 400’s (most of the team was Power Cleaning that night) they all said that basically if at a combine you can Clean over 300 you are the man, so just in conversation I said that I thought that I could Clean over 300 and I haven’t even Cleaned in about 7 years, so they all of course said no way that not even one player on their team could do that, basically talking smack.
So I went over to the platform and after about a 3-5 minute warm up put 315 on and had about the worst form ever (no drop/legs at all) and did it with no problem at all. Pretty much everyone’s eyes were huge and I think they all were a little embarrassed. I also rubbed it in a little and let them know that I had on no belt, my shoes (Nike shox) were less than ideal and untied, the previous day was a max-effort box squat day, this was in the middle of a current workout, and I used no legs on purpose because they were sore and I had to Deadlift the next day. I figured some people on here would enjoy this little story.
