new American Record clean and jerk

For those of you who enjoy big Olympic style lifts, at the bottom of the linked blog is a vid of Caleb Ward, 19 years old, clean and jerking a new Junior American Record of 203kg, or about 447lbs. This was done this last weekend in Columbus, Ohio at the Arnold sports festival. In doing so, he earned a spot on the Pan-Am team, and also became the youngest American in history to go over 200kg, and also now has the highest clean and jerk in history for an American teenager. Its also a pretty technically good lift. The part he does best, in my opinion, is the quick second pull and then very very quickly getting under the bar, and getting the elbows around and ready to recieve. Really, no one does this better than Caleb.

There is one other video, of Jon North, Calebs teammate, clean and jerking 184kg in the 94kg weight class, this lift put Jon also on the Pan-Am team for this year. This is also a pretty techically good lift, but note the differences, Jon is a puller and very athletic, but not as good at that change in direction as Caleb is.

Re: new American Record clean and jerk

I've been watching those California Strength videos for a while now. I can not be any more impressed with the massive numbers you guys put up there as well as technique that I can only dream of. Congratulations to Caleb, thats one 'ell of a lift

Re: new American Record clean and jerk

Been reading the Cal Strength blog for a while now. Impressive stuff you guys are putting out. Best of luck to all 3 of your lifters at the Pan Ams.

On a side note, when we move in to our bigger spot I am going to ask that you come out for one of your Saturday O-lifting seminars, Glenn.
