» Critique my power clean! (Go to post)31-07-2015 @ 23:36 
I'm a complete novice at power cleans, but I had a crack anyway tonight. Please critique my form and tell me if it's s**t or not.

This video wasn't my best rep, I fell back onto my heels.

I'm doing daily benching pressing at the moment!

FYI I do cgbp, but because it's my strongest grip position, it's become my normal bench now (if that makes sense)

A quick bit of background on myself..I respond well to high frequency training. I've only gotten into benching in the last 8 days because of an elbow injury from tricep pushdowns that put me out of benching for nearly 1.5 years. (s**t, I know) I recently found cgbp does not hurt my elbow so I got back into it! First session I did I managed 6x3 paused with 80kg. 1 week later I did 100kgx2 paused. So daily training works wonders! I've spent a fair amount of time doing daily squatting so that's where most of my knowledge comes from.

- Work up to a daily PAUSED training max - this is not a true 1rm, but I lift that is heavy/challenging/but can be done with 100% good form. It will be around 93-95% of your true 1rm.

- Then back down weight and do something along the lines of 3x3, 3x5, 3x3/5/8 all paused reps. Again with 100% perfect form. In total, you should aim for a total of 10-15 reps. You should never get hyped up for a lift. If you do, you're doing it wrong.

The only thing I'm not sure of is how to implement overhead press and extra tricep work. But I'm going to post about it on the forum later today and see if anyone gets back to me.

Did some back squats for the first time in 3 weeks.


Lost strength, but it should come back quick.

Front squat pr!

120kgx1 easy

I know my legs are good for more (130kg at least) but I'm lacking upper back strength at the moment. Any tips for improving this?

Went to see the GP about chronic compartment syndrome and when I said it developed from squatting she asked "what's a squat?"

lol...okay. Anyway I've been referred to a physio but it will take time as I'll be on a waiting list.

In other news, it's been 7 days since I last squatted and the pain as calmed considerably so I did some front squats (for the purpose of using as little weight as possible while still being challenging)

100kg 5x5 - fairly easy. clean grip.
leg press 2x20, I don't get pain from this so I thought I might as well use it for now.

Are you not a bit screwed if you fail a lift while doing very high frequency training

I shouldn't be failing a lift, however I only tried it due to the speed of the 140kg rep. I guess I was being a bit ambitious!
