do you mean weight or depth?

Nice bro

depth as low as u can stay tight
weight as high as u can go and stay tight
normal ratio is 80-90% or something

I'm pretty new. My hang snatch is very close to my regular snatch. Is there a problem?

Btw i am still 30lbs of till lmfao! bw snatch
>>
>>31820611
naw while you are relatively new it can almost be higher sometimes
>I've hit my last 2 prs from hang before i hit them from ground
>>
>>31820656
Even for a good number of more advanced lifters, hangs can be higher than full lifts. Okulov is a good example, dude has hang snatched 190. Navigating the knees properly is one of the hardest parts of weightlifting.

Train tomorrow night yay or nay? Only use a technique bar and work on form? Skip snatches?

Don't snatch.
Do you feel comfortable deadlifting/squatting?
Do it.

It looks pretty different from what I got.
At the sport school I went to in Shanghai it was basically
mon - snatch
tue - c&j
wed - squat
thu - track stuff
fri - snatch + c&j
sat - squat
sun - rest
Of course they added pulls and did whichever squat they felt necessary, but they focused on these specific things for different days. This is a basic skeleton with lots of wiggle room

They trained differently in shandong at the provincial team, but the coach told me not to reveal their "secret chinese programming" :)
>>

Wait a day or two before any stressful work. I pulled mine 2 days ago. yesterday was shit, this morning was shit, now 12h later its completely fine

Also on chinfl it said to not trust kirksmans new stuff because his coach decried him, it should be the other way around. Wu chuanfu is agreed to be a fraud throughout china by multiple coaches, kirksman cut ties with him when he found out

basic programming I've seen is MWF alternating full lifts, 2 sessions a day (I'm only doing 1 a day tho), Tue/Sat single squat session, thu track
seems very similar overall
also what was the program he gave you like before he 'trusted' you?

huh really?
I talked to wu and he said kirk was being arrogant and annoying
but I guess there more to it
kirk is arrogant and annoying tho

>>31823408
I don't even remember what it was anymore, but I made some modifications based on what I learned in Shanghai and came up with this. I don't recommend you follow it. Now that I look back, he probably gave me this so I can practice technique more, not that he didn't trust me.

Wu chuanfu is kind of a long story, I'll post it later if you care but it's pretty much he's not as good as everyone thinks

>>no longer have to/can psych myself up for any lift
This is the best part. I now compete in PL and squat with less frequency, but I do miss just casually strolling into the gym like a happy camper, and hitting heavy singles and doubles with no music or hype
>>
>>31825242
I think calf pain may be from riding bike to gym though.
>>
>>31821655
this guy tried to follow me even though i don't post stuff

Lol

>>31823472
That picture gets me ever tim. So many things are so great about it.
>>
>>31825242
>>31825448

no i get calf pain too when i squat frequently, they go away when I foam roll them though must be something tight in the ankles or some shit
>>
>>31820611
>>31820656
>>31821157

I was wondering why my form goes to shit when I don't go s-l-o-w the first pull
>>
>>31825495
Ill roll more then. Hurts though. More ankle mobility too.
>>
>>31825514
I think that its 100% ok to teach beginners a slow first pull. Helps them learn acceleration above the knee and keep position. A fast first pull is not needed even at a higher level. Look at a lot of the Asian lifters - slow and controlled.
>>
>>31825242
What were your lifts (all) before and now? How's that affected your form and mobility/flexibility?
>>
>>31825674

this relates to the comments earlier in the thread about elite lifters sometimes even doing more from the hang. the first pull does provide momentum but it's not where most of the power comes from.
>>
>>31820281
>>31820309

more straight back than upright torso I believe. It tends to bother me in female lifters, who dramatically hyperextend their lumbars, because I feel like it's a bad way of going about things, but then again I'm not a weightlifting coach.

Good for what? If you started snatching 40 then no. If you started snatching the bar then it's better. It sucks if you're 100 kg, it's good if you're 50 kg.
>>
>>31820309
Is it just one of you that keeps spelling "cue" wrong or is this a non native speaker thing? Or a meme?

"Queue" is pronounced the same as "cue" though they have different meanings.

"Que" is a Spanish word.

And yes I started with just the bar and some really light trainer plates that couldn't be dropped, for about a month or so. Only made 52.5 last week, snatch has been very slow to progress, clean I've kept it low on purpose.

CJ: 100kg-105kg
Snatch: 55kg-85kg
Haven't maxed out on anything else yet. Only a week in.

Mobility is better and my legs are tighter/never relax too much when squatting.

Something happened to my cleans. I think it's overall slower but more efficient.

Snatches: I now catch with a less vertical torso. I think my legs are just tired.

Jerk: I suck at it. Doesn't hurt my wrists or elbows anymore. lockout problems are gone.

The gym was pretty good and the membership fee was pretty cheap but the coach said that he generally walks around and helps everyone, it's extra charge for one on one sessions. Is this the usual for weightlifting gym?
>>
>>31828344

dunno, I'm self-taught, only time I've had a 'coach' was when I was in high school and our athletics instructor made us learn to power clean for football players

well, with the exception of one time when I went to a crossfit gym and the coach was the strongest person there with a 200kg total

I picked up so many bad cues there that it set me back from the beginning. Check out how the people there lift first before deciding (and how much they're lifting)

Valve is truly milking this game for every single dollar they can grub.

Valve picks up from Dota 1, makes some improvements and releases Dota 2. Essentially, the base-game, idea and concept of DotA is already there, although Valve did put a lot of effort into making DotA for what it is today, I feel like being able to sell cosmetic items as a way to generate revenue makes sense. But that is as far as it goes. Always remember that Dota 2 would be nothing if it wasn't for the community made game Dota 1. In-game item transaction is already a cash cow for Valve, there is no need to take advantage of what seem to be a way to celebrating the DotA community, by introducing occasional new game mode but instead making it enjoyable only if money was spent. Everything just seems so cashy, it is like they're trying to make us spend on the game in every opportunity they get. I could imagine their dev-team meeting goes like this : "Hey, the (insert annual festive celebration here) is coming, so start thinking of ways to make them moneh" .

And this might go off as a little personal to me but I'll say it anyway. I'm a little annoyed by the fact that their taking advantage of the Chinese New Year celebration, for their money-making purposes? I may be overreacting on this and completely wrong, just saying, don't take us as a bunch of mindless cash cows, you want to celebrate a festive event with the community?

Some lifters train in singlets, but singlets are expensive and in my opinion, not as comfortable as a pair of long tights.

In my club we have embroidered singlets for meets, and they're like 15 years old.
>>
>>31825514
Because you lose contact with the bar when passing your knees. The actual power and acceleration takes place above the knees.
This is especially true when working on submiximal weight. If you one day start pulling heavy ass weights, the first pull will be slowed down automatically.

In my experience I've never trained in a club which offers 1 on 1 sessions for payment with a coach. You pay the fee and then get assigned a coach when you arrive the first time, and stick with him / her til something happens. Said coach usually has a small group of 2-3 adepts of same level training together, providing equal amount of input to all of them. If there's a need / want for extra sessions outside usual "group" hours you simply ask if he'll be there when you'll be there and work out something individually.

But then again I've only trained in 2 different clubs altogether. I believe this is also something which is heavily dependant on where you train, what country.

to answer your question: no it doesnt count as an 'olympic lift' simply because its not a discipline in which you compete in the olympics

>expect
-knees feeling wierd / sore (start easy, should get better in a couple of days / weeks)
-trouble to keep upright / same angle of torso throughout the lift
-reliance on mobility in different areas than what you are used to, for example ankles / calves
-that a narrower stance than what you're used to will probably feel better & stronger
-big tendancy to good morning when it gets heavy and your body reverts to what it has been taught to do in lowbar
-you may not feel any difference or loading of your quads at all, which will make you unsure if you are doing the right thing
-bottom position will feel much tighter and cramped than what you are used to
-a jolly good time

Finishing up 4 weeks here of wl with a coach and everything.

Lifts are coming along (esp. the snatch). Last week was great but this week? I feel like Frankenstein now. Stiff as a motherfucker. Not sure if it's mobility related or I need to take a couple days off. Out of the 28 days I've had 4 off. Been eating like a horse and sleeping bretty good.

What say you? Take a few days off? I'm hesitant because I'm not paying this guy to take days off.

No, it's a microscopic view of a bodybuilder's bicep cell.

Also, do you guys not feel the saying
"legs are to lifters what biceps are to bodybuilders" is more accurate? doesn't really make sense with back, because no lifters are showing off their back like they might be with their legs or even abs
>>
>>31843390
I would argue that back and leg strength are equally important. Legs move the bar, but in order to impart maximum force onto the barbell, the back has to stay tight.
>>

>>
>>31843671
that's true, but that's missing the point of the quote which is:

My wrists hurt during the snatch or holding the overhead position even with light weight.

What am I doing wrong?
>>
>>31845027

you have bad wrist flexibility and your supporting the weight on your wrists instead of the musculature of your back
>>
>>31842182
Oh and about Wu Chuanfu
Basically what I heard was that he started off as a youth lifter but never really like weightlifting enough to stay with it. He went around multiple provinces to train, until he finally quit to pursue bodybuilding. Then he realized the potential Chinese weightlifting had business-wise and decided to cater to crossfitters. The coaches I've met said he doesn't know enough to be a coach. I've talked to Larry Yang about him too, and he said his coaches called him a quack. My coach has personal beef with him because when Wu was young he came to my coach to train. My coach said he would coach him for free if he can pay him a portion of the prize money he received from competitions. Over time the money accumulated, but he never paid. Finally Wu just took all the money, 60k rmb, and fled to singapore without paying him. My coach is still kinda pissed lol. Kirksman told me he started noticing kinks and flaws in the way Wu taught, and started to question his ways. In the end he wasn't qualified to be teaching, as he himself was never a great lifter
>>
>>31842182
pas, Did you get the idea for those heavy pulls from my leddit post? ;)

also, I don't see how you're pulling 150/4, I'm impressed. I noticed you caught all your snatches high in that comp, is that bc of hip pain or goofy technique and sickening pull strength?

>doesn't look like you're fully extending hips or legs. full extension at the knee isn't necessary but you're lacking drive.
>back rounding a bit in the hole
>You look hesitant and uncomfortable getting in the bottom position.
the thing is, your pulls (other than hips shooting up a bit) look great. Just try to emulate those a bit more, which will probably just take some time.

>>31846092
not too bad if you go cheap. Go for a slightly better bar (pendlay, rogue, klokov) if money allows, but demonstrated by the new hookgrip bar test video, eleiko or werksan is NOT much different other than longevity.

OK so it's very obvious from this that my squat is weak as shit, and that my upper back might be weak too. Hoping for second opinions. I honestly didn't think I'd make this, my last pr was 105.

I've noticed on paused back squats (usually 3-4 seconds) when I go ATG my right shin bone feels like it's grinding or bumping against my foot. I want to say it's me forcing/gaining flexibility, but it's probably not. Doesn't hirt much at all either.

>>31846239
Start the second pull later, up higher on the legs. Work on upper back tightness. You're decently fast but on the ascent from the bottom you're very slow and losing energy for the jerk.

oh my god that was an awful grind, pls squat
120kg clean isn't that much that you should be grinding them out

>>31846239

You gotta break the habit of pushing up with your hips first

Front squat up to that kind of weight, ~90-110% of clean, until you can make your ascent without shifting torso angle like that or rounding your upper back
>>
>>31850935
It was the latter. Almost totally fixed today by doing singles with +2kg increments. Still wasn't even close when I arrived just above my best lift felt too heavy. Btw do pulls without straps help in making the weight feel lighter?
>>
If I'm worried about wrist injury atm should i still jerk and snatch?
>>
>>31825242

Are you pushing away with the toes in squats? Can be a bad habit in high volume squat cycles.
>>
>>31852774
I think I was but the increased volume made me stop.

I think it's biking to the gym.
>>
>>31852674

I never really learned to high bar properly, my natural instinct is to have hips rise first when it gets heavy. I'm working on it but maybe there's some subtle cue I'm missing

I think my legs are sort of long too (though obviously not as long as yours)
>>
>>31853310

Eh mine are long but proportions aren't awful

It's more of a motor pattern thing
keep the glutes tight and think about driving up through the chest

"This is about having only one life".... Did you just sneak in a proverbial form of "YOLO" in there? What the f*ck, dude?

lol at this comment
>>
>>31848408
here's how you clean and jerk:
grab the bar
get it onto your shoulders
stand up
get it above your head
finish standing with feet together

Here's how you snatch:
grab the bar
lift it and hit it hard with your hips in order to
get it above your head in one movement
finish standing with feet together

don't overcomplicate it, olmpic weightlifting is just getting heavy weights from the floor to overhead. simple as that.
>>
>>31856358
>>31856415

>>
>>31856415
Can you contract the mid/lower traps and rear delts? A good way to test is to get into a lat stretch (rockback stretch or something I believe) on the floor then focus on thoracic extension. You should feel the entire mid-upper back contracting forcefully. Also, get a foam roller or substitute and just focus on arching the thoracic spine around it while keeping the ribcage depressed, to ensure that the extension isn't all coming from the lumbar spine.

Also, rowing heavy, depending on the row variation, might not be a good idea as your primary back extension exercise, as most people are lat dominant, and will unconsciously shift the load to their lats when it gets heavy. The lats actually make thoracic extension harder as they tilt the scapula forward. Try doing three to five sets of a much lighter row variation, like face pulls, and focusing on the contraction of the back extensors before you go to do your heavy rows. And make sure you're stretching the lats along with the chest/anterior shoulder.

a video would really help here. I'm coming off having damaged my teres major and some of the scapular retraction muscles, so that could be it. Now you mention it though, my pecs are so tight that they almost hurt to touch. Guess I should roll them?

Keep your ribs down more than the chick in that video.

Can do this with arms on a bench or arms extended on the floor in front of you. Just imagine trying to make as big of an arch in your thoracic spine as possible while you're doing it, and you should feel the thoracic extensors kick in

Face pull

Do it before your heavier rows. Keep the core tighter than the guy in the video and don't let your ribs fly upward when you retract the scapula

Use this to make sure you're utilizing your rows properly

woah, thanks m8
this will really help I feel, I usually fail my squats because my upper back caves
>>
>>31857312
anything less than a 2.5kg is placed outside of the collars to save time when changing weights between attempts, the mircoplates are designed so theres friction between them and the bar so they don't slide off during the lift
>>
>>31857404
Actually they're magnetic
>>
>>31857404
>>31858144

oh i see. that always bothered me so much because i was thinking that it would ruin the entire lift if it flew off somehow
>>
>>31858144
no they're not, not the eleiko ones anyway
>>
>>31856316
I guess he just had a bad rep among other Chinese lifters. I still wouldn't trust him, he seems like a big estatter
>>
>>31858210
There are other companies besides eleiko that make barbells, asshat

eleikos are so overrated
>>
>>31858529
>eleikos are so overrated
There are literally no other company that can even compare.
>>
>>31858558
>There are literally no other company that can even compare.

except for every other IWF certified barbell.
>>
>>31858529
ok now im certain youre just shitposting
>>
>>31858578
>IWF certified
Has nothing to do with the quality of the bar, just the design.

So I tried the Sots Press today. I don't know if it's because my bottom position is extremely upright but I ended up getting pulled backward and fell on my back, which gave me a good excuse to do a nifty backward roll into standing. On the upside, I don't think shoulder mobility is an issue, if that's what the Sots Press is meant to challenge/improve.

Hey /owg/ I want to slowly incorporate clean and jerks into my workout so I started out with working on my front rack position and front squat. I've run into a problem though, whenever I front squat I get massive buttwink, I don't have this problem when I highbar squat?

Mobility

Could be anything, so stretch more, check out yoga for weightlifters
>>
>>31858617
If you've actually used different barbells, many people agree that Uesaka and ZKC are better
>>
>>31858756
Is it typical for front squat to require more mobility?
>>
>>31858690
In my opinion, if you can high bar squat, then you have the mobility to front squat. I reckon it's probably a technique flaw. Widen your stance for front squat, angle the toes out a tiny bit more, allow the knees to track slightly more out as well as forward, don't initiate with any sit back whatsoever, it should be all sit down.
>>
>>31858790
I'm sure they do, but they still don't compare to eleiko when it comes to sheer technical prowess.
>>
>>31858860

lol. nothing compares to eleiko advertising apparently.

you and the guy saying "eleiko is overrated" are equally deluded
>>
>>31858828
Alright thank you I'll post a video of me doing it on YouTube in a bit and link it here.
