Re: The Importance of Strength in Olympic Weightlifting and Other Power Output Activi

I can agree with this to some degree. O-lifts have become my focus and consume a good deal of my training over the last year. I've been on a PR train as the improvement in tech and increased volume is starting to come together. I'm starting to move some weight but have recently hit a wall on CnJ as I am cleaning what is also my 1RM front squat. Now I'm back to a squat cycle to try to negate that problem because I can pull, catch, and possibly jerk 110-115% of my max CnJ but I keep missing because I cant get out of the hole after the catch. Had I spent more time on absolute strength before committing to O-lifts I wouldn't have this problem.
