I’ve been into lifting in general for a few years now, with varying degrees of intelligence and consistency, and fairly recently, about 3 months ago, I decided to start an olympic lifting routine. The routine was 3 days a week for 12 weeks, I will be entering the final week in a few days and have absolutely fallen in love with the lifts. I feel like I’m really starting to get my technique to the point where it’s fairly consistent and solid, considering I have no access to coaching.
I have a bodyweight of 150 lbs and my bests are 245 clean, 155 snatch, 160 power snatch (intended to be a full snatch just ended catching it high enough i only had to half squat), 270 front squat and 325 back squat (from before I started the routine so definitly lower now). Since I’ve decided to continue my dedication to weightlifting, I have a few questions I’d like to be answered. First what is the relation between the jerk and the clean? I can comfortably clean 100 kilos for 2 does that mean that I should be able to clean and jerk it?
Next regarding my front squat, I haven’t really been able to increase my max all that much despite doing it 3 times a week, every time I attempt over 270 my back caves. Could i fix this through an exercise like romanian pulls? And finally I recently turned 19 and by this time next year I’d like to be at a 200kg total, is this an unrealistic goal?
