    I heard Carmine said next time he's going to to 675x4 and there's no way you're going to beat him.

    I dunno, that's just what I heard.

    Well, that example might be a little extreme, but my point is that if only total weight is considered, the 901@400 is a better lift than the 900@114. If you consider the 900 a more impressive lift,...

    Is a 901@400 deadlift more impressive than a 900@114 deadlift? After all, more weight is moved. I think coefficients and percentiles are pretty important in determining how great a lift is.

    I like to see the effort. I like watching Brian Siders lift with what appears to be little effort. Or watching someone grinding out a lift. Ultimately, of course, the weight moved is the barometer...

    I thought 'Jes' was pronounced /dʒɛ'z̩/ and not /dʒɛs/. Of course, I used to think your name was Laura. So what the hell do I know.

    I'm just glad you got Ryan to help you with your form

    I forgot there's 35 extra pounds on the bar when using the SSB with olympic collars! I probably should have stopped at the 490 which I thought was 455. That padding makes it feel hella' lighter.

    No. Her clean/snatch form is so terrible you could get injured just watching it.

    I would say stop squatting for the week before you plan on maxing. Maybe one very light session to keep the blood flowing, but if you've been training hard, a week off will help more than anything...

    I agree. The whole OL vs. PL debate is a non sequitur.

    As for the original topic, I would argue that the high pull is superior to both the power and full versions for athletic performance.

    I think they're taught to squat like that. If you watch closely, you'll see his knees don't actually come "in". They go out, then come back to neutral.

    I wonder if there is something to that...

    Switch to hook grip until it becomes too difficult
    Use monkey grip (alternate sides)

    Fred "Dr. Squat" Hatfield squatted 1014@255 when he was 45 years old.

    You should bring the bar closer to your shins before you start. Also, try lifting your toes off the ground. Do the first pull slower, and make sure the bar stays close to your body.

    Thanks.
