    Nice work. :) I was happy just to get 185 last week. Hopefully I can keep adding weight to my 1rm. My snatch needs work though, I only got 135 on that one.

    i love cleans mostly because a subtle change in form and mentality can equal a new PR, few things as thrilling as attempting a PR imo :o

    upright row/semi power clean is the only way to go

    Yeah, he meant bad form lol. Like elbows straight to the ground instead of high and wrists supporting all the weight getting totally fucked :rofl:

    worst feeling evar is when you are able to bench 225 but then when you cut you cant lift it anymore :wtc:

    I still can't get my hips/thighs to impact the bar clean enough to drive the weight out. More practice I suppose :(
