Re: Snatch/clean pulls - determining weight?

If you go too heavy all you are doing is deadlifting the weight.

My coach told me that I shouldn't go over my 1rm clean or snatch, for weight.

For it to be valuable you need to hit all your positions with the correct speed, timing and bar path. It's hard to get all those things when you go too heavy.
