I would suggest working out your shoulders, forearms, and legs out. These are the main muscles used in clean and jerk, and make sure you eat good foods to back that up.

As for bench press, just bench alot thats pretty simple, start using a weight tha you can only get 3-5 reps out of and max out here and there, eventually it will go up. I found that using Heavy Dumbell Presses made my bench go up dramatically.

Wow. You shouldnt worry about your strength man. For a 15 year old to be cleaning 240 and benching 230 is awesome. Just keep doing what your doing, it seems to be working wonders for you. What's your squat?

the reason for want to get that strong is because by senior year I want to try to break the state record witch is 365lbs in my weight class.

That's very impressive as well. Im assumeing you were a pretty dominant lineman last year?

I preffer back squats personally but either get the job done I suppose.

yeah I was one of like 10 kids that got moved up to varsity. And did so some crazy ass stuff I laid this kid big joe out and he was a giant he was 6'7 and 260lbs and every lineman saw it was awesome. and this year if I really tryed hard I could start o-line. but I dont really like the coaches so I have been thing about quiting but, I could probably get into a really good school if I stayed playing what do you think.

At your size and strength you should definetly stay out. Just play football and respect your coaches even if you dont like them. At those measurables you could have a scholarship coming your way in a couple years.

If you're doing what you're doing at 15 years old, your gonna crush every record they have. Just don't stop workin' hard. And on the bench press - I bench ~250 and I am just a little guy, and only one year older than you - here's how I get my bench to go up pretty fast.

Warm up ( I use 135 x 8)
then...
185 x 6
205 x 6
225 x however many you can do
185 x 6

If you do this right, 2 times a week, you should put on 1 rep to your 225 set each session almost (at first). You should use those weights too. When I started that routine, I went from 225 x 2, to 225 x 6 in just two and a half weeks. (225 x 6 = 250 x 1) Check out my journal if you want to see the actual progress.

that was the varsity I was on freshman most of the year and got moved up up two weeks before the season ended so they would not have me on that list.
