Looks like my Snatch, C&J is weaker then yours. I've had about 6x misses at 125, 10x misses at Jerking 150 and 2x at 151.
My squats are stronger but my DL is weaker then yours. My DL will forever be cack due to my prolapsed L4 so I never really DL.
I got my BP from 118-133 in 6 weeks. I maxed every Saturday for 6 weeks LOL. From 133-135 was another 3 weeks or so. This isn't a TNG, this is more like a springboard! I don't BP as my right shoulder REALLY doesn't like it :(. I did 100 for 16reps also, that really f0cked it up. I can do push ups, it just doesn't like being blocked by the bench.
Going to smart smashing pulls again after the English this Saturday. Hammer out Squats and Jerks. Squats at the start of all of my session.
No coincidence that I did 110/135 yesterday and I front squat 150 for a double and 155 for a single. Strength is coming back to me after about 10 sessions!
Snatch: 80 kg Clean + Jerk: 115 kg Squat: 180 kg Bench: 120 kg DL: 226 kg
Bw 72.5-75 kg
My snatch sucks. I also couldn't train it for about 2 months because I injured my wrist. I've really gotta start hitting it hard if I'm ever gonna do 100. I can also jerk 125 from the rack, but I can't clean it. And I can power squat 200. I like this thread.
I really didn't mean any offense. I was wondering if you'd had a big accident or something. Sounds more like accumulation though. Sounds like you've lost a lot of weight too. Is pulling not a problem with your back?
Any recommendations you could make to stay injury free/things you did wrong?
haha...no I know you did not mean any offense, I was just messing with you.
Ya, accumulation...need surgery on both shoulders...have diffuse degenerative disc disease in my back, have has a reconstruction of my left elbow...meniscus tear in left knee, just this past monday suffered a quad tear...
I think what I did wrong was pick the wrong sport to be in!
I am really a small guy. 5'6" and I have a very small frame. small joints, small hands and feet, narrow shoulders, my mother was 4'10" and only 90lbs. dad was 6' but a tall lanky beanpole that at his heaviest was maybe 170lbs.
I got into lifting early because I was a short chubby kid who always got picked on...
but I think I was meant to be one of those small quick guys...not a big strong one.
I have always been naturally explosive, for a short guy I could always jump really high, I could touch the rim of a bb goal and I easily could spike a volleyball.
but I suffered my first major pec and hamstring tears in my first year of serious lifting before I was 19!
think about that, at that age most of us were indestructible...but I was already getting hurt pushing max weights.
as for pulling...deadlift has always been my best most consistent exercise, that and the overhead press. 90% of my injuries have came from squatting and benching.
for some reason, a heavy pull does not stress my back in a way that heavy e=deep squats do...I think that i have a long torso relative to my short stature, and my levers are just all wrong for squatting big weights.
I have always leaned over and used a lot of back when squatting. my mechanics just suck. one reason I can still front squat fairly decent(all time best 200kg) is that I HAVE to stay upright to finish the lift. if I lean over too much, I dump the weight. back squats I lean over when I get near max loads, and boom there goes my back.
I'd like to get in on this, but I haven't been on a bench press or done a max effort deadlift since I started o-lifting about 2 years ago. Not to mention I've been feeling weak as shit lately and don't want to use PR numbers from months ago haha.
I haven't BP in months...the last time it was 100 for 16reps about 5months ago...
My last 1RM DL was in July 2010.
The Snatch is all about technique, speed, power and you can't muscle it. You have to finesse it. The Clean you and brute force the mofo and it's much more dependent on being strong. Most people will find beastying a Clean easier then the Snatch.
