That is really bad, a 450 to 210, but your form is probably not so good either, I bet you’re just standing up with the bar. Do them for a couple of weeks and It’ll probably jump to about 240 without a problem.
Yea, I probably am just standing up. I also tend to be weak off the floor when deadlifting so maybe the initial acceleration is an issue.
But honestly, I’m not powercleaning with the primary goal of increasing my powerclean. I’m doing it to help my deadlift. So, if it doesn’t go up, I may just consider replacing it with speed deadlifts.
What percentage of someones deadlift would you expect to be “normal” for a powerclean?
well pretty much if you can deadlift it with enough speed to launch it to above your belly button and front squat it for 3 reps… then you can clean it.
