5 rep range lets say
I will tell you after friday
Last time I did it it was something very low, like 135 and it still kicked my ass.
205 for 5
I did 135x7ish last week just screwing around trying to get form down... I could tell I could do alot more, but not sure on the amount.
front squat.... hmm.... 100?
185 for 5 probably more
150kg for a single. 5 reps in the front squat is hell, so I don't really do it. Triples are probably the perfect rep range.
my best was 165x2 atg
515, for reps
that's pretty impressive. I think I can only get 275ish for a couple reps
It's a shame it doesn't seem to transfer over to a good C&J for me.
Do you use the clean or cross grip?
how much can you C&J? The sad part is I can almost clean and jerk more than I front squat
C&J about 125kg right now, because I'm coming off a broken arm right now and have trouble locking the weight out over head. I can clean about 135kg though.
going old school now, is it still recommended to put a 2x4 under your feet for them?
nice numbers. must have some serious bar speed!
I dunno. I'd think that you should be able to front squat much more than you C&J, because with the olympic level lifters I see them all dropping all the way down and having to front squat the weight up
Definately switch to the clean grip. Just grip it slightly wider than shoulder width and have it resting on your shoulders. You want to keep your elbows as high as possible.
Raised heels definately helps. Weightlifting shoes are far and away the best option, but either a board or a plate under the heel will probably help.
you a competition lifter, or do you primarly work oly moves? those arent recreational weights...
