It's been a while since I have been a regular on this site, but my relentless pursuit of muscle has not skipped a beat. This is going to be a medium/long post because of it!
Since April of this year, I have been studying and applying methods used by Dmitry Klokov.
Yesterday, I was able to Power Clean and Split Jerk 275, with relative ease. I hit the weight about 2 months ago, but not even close to this easy. In fact, I am considering my recent 275 the best C+J rep that I have ever performed - in terms of form and weight. It just felt so good.
Then I remembered an old friend who got me started on Cleans and Jerks and Snatches. A man who taught me priceless methods and literally taught me who Dmitry Klokov was. His name, Christian Thibaudeau!
Now I know that a 275 C+J is actually not that impressive. As a lot of us have learned by now, the numbers are mostly important as a form of data and organization. Since adopting Klokov's methods, and using what I was previously taught by Thibs, so far 2015 has been by far the most productive year of training I have had in my career.
I am 25 years old, and I have been a member of T-Nation since 2007. And if it were not for this MASSIVE wealth of information, and the people here who support it - I would not be where I am. It's that simple.
Now this next part is where Thibs comes in
It's been a long while since I had a form/technique critique on my Weightlifts. And I firmly believe (simply because it has happened before) that CT will know how I can take this to the next level.
So without further adue, here is a 275 Power Clean and Split Jerk. I ask the simple question: How can I make this better?
