Why do think Kolecki’s jerk is so good? [/quote]
I don’t really understand what you’re asking. Or should I say, I don’t know why you’re asking. I don’t remember saying that Kolecki’s jerk is good (though it is). I was just amazed that by the fact that Kolecki, who, if I remember correctly, C&J’s 220kg or more, would spend that much time with 140 and 150.
I just now watched it. Very impressive. I guess the reason that I’m so amazed stems from when I first started lifting. One of the guys at our gym, a much older fellow, loved to study the training systems of the best. He had every training and competition video that existed. He was particularly fascinated with the Bulgarians and their system. He was a big source of information for me, and this information influenced how I thought about training and thus how I organized my programs. One of the few books that I’ve purchased, A Program of Multi-Year Training in Weightlifting, has most of the training has most of the training taking place at 80% or more for 2 reps or less.
How much of the training year do these lifters spend on these light weight, high rep (3 is high) sets? Do they spend large portions of their time training like this and just peak for a competition?

I thought that I had a fairly good understanding of the Soviet system, but if they spend much time training like this, then I was wrong. Would someone mind educating me?
