Sorry, I meant to say that that would be an undesirable thing indicative of too much weight, not that you should actually keep adding weight until you get to that point.

Re: Snatch pull vs. Clean Pull

After Greg posts, there is really nothing else to say. Spot on as usual.

If the elbows are coming high and outside on either, it's becoming more of a snatch/clean high pull, really a different exercise (differentiated by the amount of weight that can be used).

That said, the elbows will bend somewhat, largely passively, if there's as much speed on the bar as there should be and the elbows are allowed to remain unlocked as they should.

There really isn't a way to max on a pull. If you're referring to the weight prescription of 100%, that indicates 100% of your best snatch or clean, not your best snatch or clean pull.

If it's sore - ice it. If it's torn - tape it. If it's heavy - lift it!
