    Last time I did it it was something very low, like 135 and it still kicked my ass.

    150kg for a single. 5 reps in the front squat is hell, so I don't really do it. Triples are probably the perfect rep range.

    It's a shame it doesn't seem to transfer over to a good C&J for me.

    Do you use the clean or cross grip?

    how much can you C&J? The sad part is I can almost clean and jerk more than I front squat

    C&J about 125kg right now, because I'm coming off a broken arm right now and have trouble locking the weight out over head. I can clean about 135kg though.

    going old school now, is it still recommended to put a 2x4 under your feet for them?

    I dunno. I'd think that you should be able to front squat much more than you C&J, because with the olympic level lifters I see them all dropping all the way down and having to front squat the weight up

    Definately switch to the clean grip. Just grip it slightly wider than shoulder width and have it resting on your shoulders. You want to keep your elbows as high as possible.

    Even better:

    Raised heels definately helps. Weightlifting shoes are far and away the best option, but either a board or a plate under the heel will probably help.
