Re: 17 Years old, PR 200Lb Clean

In this case I have to say that your PRs are really awesome. I have rarely seen someone being able to squat clean a front squat PR.

Re: 17 Years old, PR 200Lb Clean

Thanks! Yeah my front squat is a pretty lagging point, which is why I'm doing LSUS again with a bias on leg strength. Hopefully I can get it to catch up, but it seems like anytime I put weight into my squat, the same amount of weight goes into my clean, so it's a vicious cycle haha.

That is because (normally) your max clean should be a percentage of your max front squat (meaning you should not be able to hit a front squat PR while doing cleans). Depending on whom you ask numbers differ a bit, but 90% might be the standard. This means that your clean is definitely limited by your front squat.

Re: 17 Years old, PR 200Lb Clean

Yeah. I've read Medvedyev's book which gives all the percentages you should be at for the classic lifts in relation to the assistance strength lifts. Both of my classic lifts are well above my squat percentages as well as the pressing percentages. I'm sure it will wen out eventually with enough squat work though.
