    woke up late today and 1 hr late to work, cuz couldnt sleep, so i jsut drank muscle milk all morning, and a cup of tea

    cleaned 255 @ 185lb today for all time PR (116kg @ 84kg )

    now the significance...

    wrapped 4 fingers around a basketballl hoop....

    progress is as follows

    205 @ 175 = just swiping under rim

    235 @ 175, = touch the rim with 2 fingers

    255 @ 185 = 4 finger wrapped, tried to hang but rim was slippery (got it 3 times too)



    ahh went back to the office bragging and this guy who is 5'10" and doesnt lift at all about 165lb tells me he can two hand dunk a ball. pissed me off but its gives me some motivation for a new goal :)

    question: Power just means you pull it high enough so you don't need to dip down to catch it?

    yep pretty much, although you can dip down slightly, but you dont continue all the way down for a full clean.

    I guess its personal preference, but for ME and MY feet, the difference between cross trainers and lifting boots is night and day - i dont squat without them

    was it a power clean or clean

    and as for the shane hamman quote, if you have a 36 inch vertical and are 5'9", there is no way you can dunk a basketball with two hands

    Are you forgetting about the whole arms thing which enables you to reach above the top of your head? Or were you thinking the top of his reach was 5'9"?
